Program Authorization: Constitution of 1974, Article VIII, Section 7; R.S. 17:1421, Act 83 of 1977, Act 313 of 1975; Act 52 of 1978, Act 971 of 1985, Act 3 of 1997

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: The Louisiana State University System’s mission is to redefine and improve the core functions that are normally associated with central administration including: strategic planning and consensus building among all levels of higher education; Appointing, evaluating, and developing campus level chief operating officers; fostering collaboration among and between campuses; serving as an advocate about the needs of higher education; providing a liaison between state government and campuses within the system; making recommendations on the allocation of capital and operating resources; auditing and assessing the use of funds and the cost effective performances of the campuses. The system functions of allocating resources, implementing policy, and working within the structure of government make it possible for the constituent campuses to provide quality instruction, to support faculty research programs, and to serve the community and the state.

The goals of the Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors are:

1. To effectively administer the resources available to the Louisiana State University System in a fashion that allows each constituent campus to achieve its role, scope and mission;

2. To provide physical environments for facilities that stimulate teaching, research, service, and health care resources of campuses and hospitals in the LSU system.

The Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors consists of the following activities: System Management Board, Office of the System President, Budget and Financial Planning, Facilities Planning, Academic Program Planning, and Research and Information Services.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
