The University of Louisiana System has set a goal to graduate 150-thousands students by 2025. U-L System President Jim Henderson says if this can be accomplished by the nine universities in the system, these students will be the most educated generation in Louisiana history.
Henderson says in order to achieve this increase in graduates over the next eight years, partnerships with technical and community colleges are needed to provide ample classroom space for more students. He also adds using technology to our advantage.
Henderson says it’s time Louisiana started to invest more in its students. He says we need to focus more on the outcomes of investments, rather than what it costs on the front end.
