Tech considered for possible LSU merger
The proposed plan would basically involve a swap: Louisiana Tech would replace the University of New Orleans in the LSU System, while UNO would take Tech’s place in the University of Louisiana System.
Tech president Dan Reneau said discussions about a merger have been ongoing for about 15 years.
“The idea has been around since the early 1990s,” Reneau said.
Reneau said a recent report by national education consultant Eva Klein and commissioned by LSU considering a merger between LSU-Shreveport and the LSU Health Sciences Center at Shreveport brought the issue back to light recently.
