Accreditation complaint filed in LSU job merger

BATON ROUGE - The president of LSU's Faculty Senate has filed a formal complaint with the university's accrediting agency about plans to reorganize university system leadership.

Kevin Cope said Thursday that he lodged a list of criticisms with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools about an LSU Board of Supervisors decision to merge the jobs of system president and chancellor of the flagship campus.

In his complaint, Cope says decision-making has been too secretive, appears rife with political meddling by the governor's office and ignores suggestions from faculty members.

The LSU Board of Supervisors is scheduled Friday to re-vote on the job merger after the attorney general's office said the previous vote appeared to have violated the open meetings law.

LSU board chairman Hank Danos didn't return a request for comment Friday.
