BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The LSU System governing board is beginning its search for a new leader, after deciding to merge the positions of system president and chancellor of the flagship campus.
But it's still unclear how the university system will be structured, as the Board of Supervisors weighs advice from a Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm that proposed a significant revamp of organization for the campuses.
Both items are up for discussion Friday before the board.
LSU board chairman Hank Danos said he's not sure if the panel will vote Friday on specific recommendations from the consultants. He said he expects the board will ask LSU System President William Jenkins to form a task force to wade through the details of reorganization.
