“We are so grateful to be able to offer our faculty and staff this opportunity to further their education with such an outstanding leader in higher education,” said BPCC Chancellor Dr. Rick Bateman Jr. “Not only will our employees benefit from world-class instruction in our region… they will do so at a reduced cost.”

Louisiana State University Shreveport Chancellor Larry Clark added, “Preparing Northwest Louisiana students for the 21st century workforce requires strong and meaningful partnerships between higher-education institutions in Shreveport-Bossier.
