The community is invited to attend a public forum next week to discuss sustaining and strengthening higher education in north Louisiana.
The forum is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the Louisiana Purchase Building at Louisiana Delta Community College in Monroe.
The goal of the forum is to frame issues facing the region, assess the sustainability of higher education options and encourage legislative engagement in support of regional higher education institutions.
Louisiana Progress is working with The News-Star and KTVE to sponsor the Higher Education Policy Forum. The first hour will be televised and the entire event will stream live on the Internet.
The focus of the forum is: “How do we sustain access to high quality post-secondary education?”
Grambling State University President Frank Pogue will be among the members of the community panel.
