LSU receives guidance on system overhaul
BATON ROUGE - A consultant says LSU will have to create its own path as it undergoes a sweeping reorganization amid declining state aid and questions about jobs and personnel.
The LSU Board of Supervisors has voted to consolidate the university's separate institutions under the main campus. Concurrently, the board is looking for a chief executive to run the revamped university as part of the reorganization effort called LSU2015.
Christel Slaughter, of SSA Consultants, met with LSU's Transition Advisory Team Thursday working under the notion that LSU needs to adapt to an era of declining state budgets, while also serving a new breed of technology-savvy students.
The advisory team's primary responsibility is plotting out what the university will look like going forward.
