Board of Regents Staff Response to Act 619
This report, compiled pursuant to Senator Sharon Hewitt’s Act 619 of the 2016 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature (Act 619), examines the various issues enumerated in Act 619 within the current context of postsecondary education in Louisiana. Act 619 specifically requests a comprehensive analysis of the postsecondary system that allows the Board of Regents and postsecondary education leaders to evaluate and streamline academic offerings, stimulate innovative research and respond to local/regional workforce needs and, in turn, better prioritize resources. Act 619 also requires the Board of Regents to collect and report various data regarding the postsecondary education enterprise.
A preliminary draft of the Board of Regents Staff response to Act 619 was posted in late January. Following discussions and the open feedback period, that draft has been updated.
