BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU System President William Jenkins has created a 10-person advisory panel to review ways to reorganize the university system and its campuses.
Jenkins announced the panel Monday, saying the system's Board of Supervisors will give the advisory group instructions at its Dec. 7 meeting.
Members include Jenkins, current and former LSU leaders, the lead counsel for the LSU System, business leaders with ties to LSU campuses and retired Army Lt. Gen. Russell Honore.
The Board of Supervisors is weighing recommendations from its Washington, D.C.-based consultant, which proposed a more consolidated leadership structure overseeing the campuses. The proposal has generated criticism and raised concerns.
Jenkins told state lawmakers the structure proposed by the consultant likely won't be used in a final restructuring.
