Monroe -- Dr. Joshua Stockley, associate professor of political science and L.M. McKneely endowed professor at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, presented at the 75th Annual Conference of Louisiana Colleges & Universities in Baton Rouge on March 7.
As part of a panel titled, “Current Political Trends Affecting Higher Education,” Stockley spoke to a statewide audience about the fiscal decisions made by Louisiana’s government that have resulted in cuts to higher education.
Stockley’s research shows that more than 3,000 higher education jobs have been lost in the last five years within the network of campuses that make up the LSU and University of Louisiana systems.
“It was an honor to have been invited by Dr. Joseph Savoie, president of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, to give this presentation,” said Stockley.
