BATON ROUGE — The Executive Committee of the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System met in Baton Rouge Thursday to initiate a nationwide search for the eighth UL System president.  The goal is to select a new leader by the end of August when current UL System President Randy Moffett is set to retire.
“I know this is an ambitious schedule, but, as with all of our searches, it is flexible and intended to give us a framework.

Tech transfer orientation offers perspective on college
