BPCC COMMITTED TO SERVING STUDENTS, MEETING THE WORKFORCE DEMANDS OF BUSINESS/ INDUSTRY DESPITE BUDGET CUTS TO HIGHER ED

On Friday, Louisiana’s Division of Administration laid out a proposed plan that addresses the budget shortfall for FY2016, and like in years past, higher education and health care are the only areas not constitutionally protected.

Throughout the last eight years, Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) has weathered significant financial challenges while remaining committed to serving students and meeting the workforce demands of business and industry in Northwest Louisiana. BPCC has grown enrollment and enhanced the quality of our services. This has been possible only because our faculty and staff are amazingly resilient and are the hardest working, most dedicated professionals in Louisiana.

At this time, BPCC’s leadership team is working to determine the possible impact reductions might have on college operations.

“We will continue working with our legislative delegation and our partners in business and industry to find solutions to both our current and our long-term budget issues,” says BPCC Chancellor Rick Bateman, Jr. “Despite the challenges before us, I am confident that we will continue to identify innovative solutions that provide Northwest Louisiana with high quality educational services that strengthen our regional economy and our communities.”
