Program A: Education and General Expenditures

Program Authorization: Act 45 of 1959

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: Louisiana State University at Alexandria (LSUA), an open-admissions institution, will serve the educational needs of the citizens of Rapides and its contiguous parishes by providing credit and non-credit courses, associate degree programs for both transfer and job-oriented students, appropriate support services and resources, cultural and recreational opportunities for completion locally of baccalaureate degrees in a variety of disciplines.

The goals of LSU Alexandria are:

1. To provide quality educational programs to meet the needs of central Louisiana residents.

2. To have students who graduate from LSUA, or who complete 60 or more hours and then transfer to another institution, possess the skills necessary to further their educational or career objectives.

3. To provide effective administrative and support services to assist students to derive the maximum benefit from their educational experience.

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).
