What does it mean to be a great teacher
...a noble scientist...an innovative thinker?
Who creates critical breakthroughs
...thinks globally and acts locally?
“We recently challenged our faculty and staff to answer a question:
'What should Louisiana Tech look like in the future, say in the year 2020.”
“Great faculty enable us to compete nationally for funding to support our research and doctoral programs. At Louisiana Tech, we encourage students to become involved in research even as undergraduates, and we plan to expand these opportunities.”
– Dr. Terry McConathy, Vice President for Academic Affairs.
“When I look at Louisiana Tech University in 10 or 15 years, I envision an institution that is much more flexible and adaptive – one that moves nimbly and that responds to the competition for great students, faculty and opportunities.”
– Dr. Les Guice, Louisiana Tech University President.
“This is a tremendous student body. Not only do they have the enthusiasm, but they have a passion for learning. They are involved in all facets of university life.”
– Dr. Jim King, Vice President for Student Affairs.
“Louisiana Tech is on the verge of greatness...real greatness. We’re going to the next level. We have the mission and the vision, and it’s all about the culture of caring.”
– Mrs. Corre Stegall, Vice President for University Advancement.
