BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The LSU Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss, or even vote, Friday on a proposal to reorganize the LSU System under the flagship campus in Baton Rouge.
The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/Q63vmx ) the meeting is scheduled just one week after the board merged the system president and Baton Rouge chancellor positions.
The Association of Governing Boards consulting group out of Washington, D.C., recently proposed LSU ditch its current model of separate and autonomous campuses in favor of a consolidated "flagship system."
Under the AGB proposal, 14 vice presidents, who'd be responsible for everything from communications to health care delivery, would report to five executive vice presidents including a senior executive vice president and provost with primary responsibility for the main campus and all academic matters.
