Feb 20, 2019

Dr. Jim Henderson, President of the University of Louisiana System," this week on Bayou to Beltway at 12:30, 88.7 fm.

This week Bayou to Beltway speaks with President Jim Henderson about higher education in Louisiana and the University of Louisiana's role in that enterprise. We explore how the nine schools that make up the "system" differ from each other, their strengths, their weaknesses and what they bring to each other to make Louisiana better. We talk about the value of higher education to Louisiana's citizens and it's 10 billion dollar value to the economy. We focus on STEM and weigh the merits of educating for jobs as opposed to educating for life.
