The Board of Regents Division of Finance and Administration oversees financial and budget matters, administrative policies and procedures, and facilities.

The division helps fulfill a primary Constitutional mandate of the Board of Regents. It reviews annual budget proposals for the operating and capital needs of each public institution prior to the compilation of the Regents’ higher education budget recommendations. The Board also recommends priorities for capital construction and improvements.

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.
