Higher ed leaders see opportunity in face of budget adversity - Segann M March, Shreveport Times

LSUS students will pay the same tuition for less education if the state budget continues on its current track, the university's chancellor said. Even as his student enrollment continues to rise, his budget has eroded from $18 million a few years ago to $7.3 million this year. Chancellor Larry Clark is not alone – he joined his voice Friday to the sentiment expressed by a three-man panel of higher education leaders who spoke in Baton Rouge Thursday. The panel consisted of Southern University President Ray Belton, LSU President F. King Alexander and Dennis Michaelis, interim chancellor at Baton Rouge Community College.
