2012-2013 Budget

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 08/01/2012 - 6:38pm

Dear Faculty and Staff,

We will soon begin an academic year and remain optimistic as we welcome new students and colleagues to our campus community.

When we initially projected enrollment for the coming year, we expected that tougher academic requirements would negatively impact freshman enrollment.  One forecast projected a 30 percent decrease in first-time freshmen.  But, thanks to our Enrollment Management Division and many of you, we now expect a much smaller decrease in freshmen this fall and have already seen a 60 percent increase in summer enrollment.

New Minor in Sociology

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 07/11/2012 - 7:08pm

Dear Faculty & Staff:

I am writing today regarding recent media attention that has prompted discussions about the LGBT studies minor that began earlier this year at our university.

Some media outlets have erroneously reported that UL Lafayette is offering a degree program or “major” for LGBT studies.   The university offers no such degree program.  A major or degree program entails approval from the UL Lafayette administration, the Board of Supervisors for the UL System and the state Board of Regents.

2011 Celebrations and 2012 Strategies

Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 01/04/2012 - 4:21pm

Dear Faculty and Staff,

Welcome back to campus!

The end of last semester was momentous. For the first time we held Commencement ceremonies in two cities. We hosted our customary college ceremonies in Lafayette and one special ceremony, complete with academic regalia, for our football student-athletes preparing for the bowl game in New Orleans. What a weekend! Even weeks later, excitement about UL Lafayette abounds around the state and well beyond. Overall, I expect that 2012 will be a great year for us.
