BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Louisiana Community and Technical College Board of Supervisors has terminated South Louisiana Community College's pharmacy technician, nurse assistant and six other programs at some campuses.
Some of those programs will be available on other campuses.
The Louisiana Board of Regents, the state's higher education policy board, requires that a program be terminated when fewer than eight students complete a program over a three-year period.
South Louisiana Community College Chancellor Natalie Harder said the board's decision Wednesday was a way for the school to get ahead of the inevitable and gives administrators time to reassign faculty and staff.
Harder says all faculty affected by the move will stay on as full-time employees responsible for other programs at their campuses or will be moved to another campus.
