January 11, 2009 — Measuring Up

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Sun, 01/11/2009 - 11:05am

In December, a report entitled Measuring Up – The National Report on Higher Education 2008 was released. It received quite a bit of national and local attention in the press. Measuring Up is a biannual report by The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. Louisiana’s grades in the report card were not impressive. A few faculty members expressed concern that this type of publicity could harm student and faculty recruitment. They may be right unless one understands what the report card is really about.

January 7, 2009 — Welcome Back

Elizabeth Rose-... -- Wed, 01/07/2009 - 9:01am

Dear Faculty & Staff,

Happy New Year and welcome back to campus for the Spring 2009 semester.

On December 15th, the university received word from our System office that because of declining state revenues, higher education would receive a substantial reduction in our current year’s budget. This news was not a total surprise considering the faltering national economy and the significant decline in the price of oil which is a major source of state revenue.

September 18, 2008 — Back to Normal

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Thu, 09/18/2008 - 3:05pm

Dear Faculty & Staff,

Getting back to a normal routine this week has certainly been a welcome change. It is my sincere hope that you and your family were not too adversely affected by the recent storms. There are many families, including those of our students, who are still cleaning up and trying to get their lives and property back to normal. If you are dealing with staff members or students in such a situation, thank you for being as understanding as possible.

A Special Note of Gratitude

Dear Faculty & Staff,

Later this week the University of Louisiana System will hold its monthly meeting in Baton Rouge. I am emailing you today to keep you informed about agenda items that affect our university.  I will seek the board’s approval to broaden the responsibilities and change the title for Dr. Steve Landry to Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.  I will also request approval to name Dean Edward Pratt as Interim Vice President for Student Affairs.

August 26, 2018 — Campus Update

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Tue, 08/26/2008 - 10:52am

Dear Faculty & Staff,

The Fall semester is underway and our students are back on campus. I know that you’ll join me in warmly welcoming them. Please take a few extra moments during the first weeks of the semester to assist our new students as they find their way around campus. Students should feel as though they are our first priority. After all, they are.

July 11, 2018 — Thank You

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Fri, 07/11/2008 - 11:25am

Dear Faculty & Staff,

Thank you for the wonderful welcome given to me and my family in our first week at UL.  Each day, as I walk our campus and talk with students, faculty and staff, I grow increasingly excited about the strong foundation on which we can build.  Your enthusiasm about UL’s future is inspiring, and I look forward to continuing our conversations and learning more about ways that together we can further advance the university.
