PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: Louisiana State University at Eunice serves the needs of its constituency in keeping with the mission of the overall Louisiana State University System. The role, scope, and mission statement for LSU at Eunice, as adapted by the Louisiana Board of Regents in October of 1993, is as follows:

Louisiana State University at Eunice (LSUE), a member of the Louisiana Sate University System, is categorized by SREB as a Two-Year I College. As an open admissions community college, LSUE serves the educational needs of southwest Louisiana primarily through a select number of associate degree programs in business and office occupations, computer information technology, criminal justice, fire science, nursing, radiologic technology, and respiratory care technology. LSUE is designated as statewide provider of undergraduate instruction in fire science outside of metropolitan New Orleans. The institution offers courses and associate of arts and science degrees for students who wish to transfer to a senior college. LSUE serves as a multi-purpose resident center of LSU and A&M College.

The goals of LSU Eunice are:

1. To improve the overall quality and effectiveness of LSUE’s administrative infrastructure.

2. To improve access to higher education services for all citizens of LSUE’s service area.

3. To provide student financial aid resources and services which contribute to student success.

 

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).
