The Future of Academe

An initiative to recruit, retain, and cultivate the next generation of faculty and staff leaders

In 2017, the Universities of Louisiana declared three strategic intents: 

  • development of the most educated and prepared generation in our state’s history,
  • renewed emphasis on research, economic development, and innovation directly advancing community health and prosperity
  • increased investment in the recruitment, retention, and development of faculty with a focus on excellence in teaching, scholarship, and research.

Recognizing that these aspirations cannot be realized without purposeful outreach to prospective high-quality faculty and staff from diverse demographic, experiential, and cultural backgrounds, the UL System is launching its inaugural Future of Academe event.
