GSU offers up three programs to be cut

The Grambling State University low completer review 2011 included the recommendation for termination of the undergraduate Middle School Education program and French Education 6-12. The graduate program that was recommended for termination was Family Nurse Practitioner.

The review of low-completer programs was mandated by the Board of Regents of the University of Louisiana System, which is looking for ways to cut costs in light of a diminishing education budget.

At GSU, 28 other programs under review were recommended for continuation or consolidation with other programs.

Over the past two years, the UL System has eliminated 56 academic degree programs. Of these removed programs, 24 were identified as low-completers under the Regents’ previous guidelines. Thirty two were campus initiated.

The next step in the Regents’ timeline is for a final recommendation to its Academic Affairs Committee on April 27.
