    Gratitude for Budget Solution

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 03/01/2017 - 1:28pm

    The University community commends Governor Edwards and members of the Acadiana Legislative Delegation for fashioning a budget solution during the recent special session that didn’t include yet another cut to higher education.

    Higher education is not merely an expense. It is an investment for a stronger economic future. Every state dollar invested in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, for example, generates a roughly sevenfold economic impact.

    Standing, Learning Together

    Dr. Joseph Savoie -- Wed, 11/09/2016 - 5:20pm

    Yesterday’s election ended a long, contentious presidential campaign that was stressful to many Americans.

    Differences of opinions about future governance of our country have strained relationships between friends, family members, and neighbors.

    But America still rests on a foundation that gives its citizens the right to free speech and the right to vote. Regardless of whether we agree with the outcome of the election, we can still respect the process that’s used to choose our leaders.
