BATON ROUGE - The LSU Board of Supervisors is considering recommendations to reorganize the LSU System under the flagship campus in Baton Rouge and could vote as soon as Friday on the ideas.
The meeting comes one week after the board unexpectedly merged the jobs of system president and Baton Rouge chancellor.
Restructuring ideas come from a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm hired by the board. The Association of Governing Boards proposes scrapping LSU's separate and autonomous campuses for a consolidated "flagship system."
LSU board chairman Hank Danos says LSU can be better served by a more unified organizational structure. He says he expects the board will ask LSU System President William Jenkins to form a restructuring task force to wade through the details of reorganization plans.
