BATON ROUGE (AP) — Consultants helping Louisiana State University find a new system president have presented three possible ways to develop the system, including two that would consolidate the jobs of system president and chancellor of the flagship Baton Rouge campus.
William Jenkins is interim president and chancellor.
The Times-Picayune reports little agreement Saturday on the key issue: Whether LSU should remain as a system managing 10 separate entities or move to consolidate them.
The consultants' report was not meant as a recommendation. The consultants said they found little support for consolidation or proposals to spin off the schools in Alexandria, Eunice and Shreveport into their own system.
The Advocate says the consultants also found that LSU has greatly improved its planning and health care system in the past six years.
