Council of Student Body Presidents

The Louisiana Council of Student Body Presidents (COSBP) was formed to promote communication among the students and member schools of the LSU System, the SU System, the UL System and the LCTC System, to further educational and social interests and to support the advancement of higher education.

The Council serves as a representative body for those students of the colleges and universities which belong to the member systems, and has the authority to convey the opinions, wishes and needs of those students to the Louisiana Board of Regents, execute measures to improve the lives of those students and to build and maintain strong working relationships among member student groups.

The Master Plan

To move Louisiana aggressively forward, the Board of Regents has embraced a robust new attainment goal that calls for 60% of all working-age adults (ages 25-64) in Louisiana to hold a degree or high-value credential by 2030. As we stand on the brink of a new decade, this Master Plan, born of the Board of Regents’ unique charge to guide postsecondary education across the state, will set the foundation to increase opportunity.  Our Talent Imperative is to Educate, Innovate, and Collaborate.
