Faculty Senate Resolution 00-01#8
Adopted Feb. 7, 2001

Resolution:
Improved Funding for Higher Education in Louisiana

WHEREAS Louisiana's system of higher education ranks at or near the bottom in the country in terms of funding, and

WHEREAS the result of this neglect will mean the flight of faculty to other states, and will create serious difficulty in hiring good new faculty, and

WHEREAS the future strength of Louisiana's economy depends largely on improving our system of education, and

NOW BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED THAT the Faculty Senate of Southeastern Louisiana University express our gravest fears for the future of higher education in Louisiana;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT the Faculty Senate of Southeastern Louisiana University urge our Legislators and the Governor to begin immediately to formulate plans designed for remedying the severe deficits in funding for higher education in Louisiana.
