BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Colorado consulting firm will be paid as much as $74,000 to study a proposal to merge Southern University at New Orleans with the nearby University of New Orleans campus.

The Board of Regents on Friday released the final terms of the contract it has with Dennis Jones, president of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems.

Gov. Bobby Jindal asked Regents to study the idea of a merged campus that would be moved into the University of Louisiana System and that would share resources with Delgado Community College.

The governor asked for recommendations by March 1, with legislation to be considered in the session that begins in April.

Black lawmakers and SUNO leaders oppose a merger.
