Louisiana Board of Regents
The Louisiana Board of Regents is a government agency in the U.S. state of Louisiana that is responsible for coordination of all public higher education in the state. The Board was created under the terms of the 1974 Louisiana Constitution, and began operations effective January 1, 1975.
The Board of Regents consists of 15 members, 14 of whom are appointed by the Governor to six-year, overlapping terms. Each of Louisiana's Congressional districts is represented by at least one Regent but no more than two Regents. The Louisiana Constitution also entitles the Louisiana Legislature to appoint a student member to the Board as the Regents' 15th member. Commissioner Sally Clausen resigned in 2010 after a brief controversy centered around her one day retirement to collect vacation pay.
