Program A: Southern University Board of Supervisors

Program Authorization: Constitution of 1974, Article 8, Section 7; R.S. 17: Section 3201, et. seq.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: The Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College System is a diverse system ranging from a two-year junior college to a university offering doctoral degrees and a law school. The System provides leadership and support to its four campuses through strategic planning, uniform business and human resource management, fiduciary duties, auditing, planning and construction of physical facilities, information and technology resources management. The system provides for articulation between the Board of Regents and the campuses, and promotes cooperation and articulation between and among the campuses of the System.

The goals of the Southern University Board of Supervisors are:

1. To preserve and enhance access to higher education for all Louisianians on all the campuses throughout the Southern University System.

2. To promote quality education for all students on all the campuses in the Southern University System.

3. To enhance information and technology resources management on the campuses of the Southern University System.

4. To effectively manage the financial, physical, and human resources of the Southern University System in a manner that ensures equitable distribution and support for each Southern University System institution in fulfilling its role, scope and mission.

DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 103.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 59.3% of the total request ($7,641,935) for this program. In addition to the statewide adjustments cited above, the major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to the settlement agreement in the "United States v. State of Louisiana" desegregation case. That ruling provides that for a period of ten (10) years (which began in Fiscal Year 1995-96), the state shall appropriate no more than $4.1 million annually to the Southern University Board of Supervisors to develop and implement new programs at its system's campuses in order to enhance the school's chances of attracting other race students. The existing operating budget for this purpose is $3,179,486. In order to meet the funding schedule dictated by the settlement agreement, an additional $115,436 is recommended for Fiscal Year 1999-2000. This adjustment, when combined with the existing funding for court-ordered activities, provides $3,294,912 for the following desegregation allocations: Southern University Board of Supervisors ($99,029); Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College ($1,885,239); and Southern University at New Orleans ($1,195,247).
