Anti-Hazing Policy

The Louisiana Board of Regents has zero tolerance for hazing of any kind.  This includes but is not limited to hazing on or off campus by any student organization and is not limited to Greek Life. Regents will continue to convene campus and system leaders to ensure that uniform hazing policies are fully implemented.

Regents declares cultural change on campus is imperative and must include protecting student voices so that violations are reported and can be acted upon to the full extent of the law. Regents supports the adoption of robust in-person and electronic training modules and will coordinate the possibility of statewide modules for all campuses to use in order to ensure the uniformity of content and fidelity of delivery to students, faculty, and administrators.

Uniform Policy on Power-Based Violence

This Uniform Policy on Power-Based Violence, promulgated pursuant to Act 472 of the 2021 Regular Legislative Session of the Louisiana Legislature, sets forth processes and procedures to guide public postsecondary education stakeholders in maintaining safety and protection for students and employees. Power-based violence is defined as any form of interpersonal violence intended to control or intimidate another person through the assertion of power over the person. It includes but is more expansive than sexual misconduct and Title IX misconduct.

Act 472 directs the Board of Regents to establish uniform policies and best practices to implement measures to address the reporting of power-based violence on Institutions’ campuses, the prevention of such violence, communication between Institutions regarding incidents of power-based violence, and the provision of medical and mental health care for these alleged victims.

Policy Overview

Upon the effective date of this Policy, all institutions shall immediately begin complying with this Policy as well as the institutional policy, once adopted, under the supervision and control of their Management Boards.

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.
