LSU Board Votes for Second Time to Merge President and Chancellor of Baton Rouge Campus Positions
Description: The LSU Board of Supervisors voted unanimously today to merge the positions of the system president and chancellor of the Baton Rouge campus. The board took a similar vote on October 26, but came under fire because the plan to take the vote was not part of the agenda, leading some to call it illegal, based on Louisiana's Open Meetings Law.
Proponents of the merged positions say it will save the university money, end the possibility of disagreements between the president and chancellor and move the university forward academically. Critics say the university has not put enough time and thought into what the changes will mean to the university and the responsibilities may be too great for any one person.
