Tech 2020 sets challenging goals by which the University 
will benchmark its progress


  • Calculator and portfolioGraduation rate of 70%
  • First-year retention rate of 85%
  • 25% of first-time freshmen in the top 10% of their high school class
  • 20-25% graduate students
  • Triple our research productivity
  • 10 patents granted per year
  • 20 active tenants & five graduates per year from our Technology Incubators
  • Research Park with six tenant companies
  • Triple our endowment



It is the considered judgment of the Louisiana Tech University Family that an enrollment of 15,000 students would maximize the achievement of these goals.
