Louisiana Postsecondary Education Review Commission

Final Report
Final Recommendations
Board of Regents Response

According to the National Governor’s Association’s Center for Best Practices, “Colleges and universities have never been as important as they are today. Economic competitiveness depends upon a state’s ability to educate and train its citizens and attract and retain talent.”
Louisiana’s ability to compete in the expanding knowledge-based economy in which we live demands that Louisiana more efficiently and effectively educate larger numbers of its citizens.

The Board of Regents, in formulating its most recent strategic plan for public postsecondary education in Louisiana, established two overarching goals:

To increase the educational attainment of the state’s population in support of the state’s current and future workforce.
To invest strategically in university research to diversify and strengthen the state’s economy.
