Statement by University of Louisiana System President Sandra K. Woodley on the Governor’s Executive Budget

“We are encouraged by the administration’s willingness to identify revenue options that could alleviate budget reductions to higher education.  We are in the process of digesting all of the options laid out in the Governor’s Executive Budget to examine how it addresses our collective goal of maintaining current funding levels with minimal burden on our students.  This is the starting point of a long process of working with the administration and legislators, as most of the revenue proposals are contingent upon legislative action.”


UL SYSTEM BUDGET UPDATES: The University of Louisiana System is taking a three step approach to keep people informed about the budget: 1.) direct messages from President Woodley; 2.) a special section on our website,; and 3.) weekly budget briefing webinars.
