A speech by Dr. F. King Alexander before the Baton Rouge Press Club on September 28, 2015. Dr. Alexander is the president and chancellor of Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge. He discusses: LSU’s recent successes; the impact of the continual budget cuts under the Jindal Administration; and the four main needs for higher education under the next Governor – stable and predictable funding, a reinvestment mechanism for workforce development, matching funds for new research dollars, and matching funds for deferred maintenance projects. Dr. Alexander also answers questions from the audience.
