Administration: Special Edition from University of Louisiana at Lafayette by President Dr. Savoie

UL Lafayette

Dear friends,  

This unprecedented public health crisis has affected everyone. The same is true at UL Lafayette. We’ve had to reimagine how to operate, how students learn, where they learn, and how we celebrate their achievements.

But one thing hasn’t changed: the desire of our students, faculty, staff and alumni to serve our community through creativity and compassion.  

The University is proud of the work they’ve done to answer the challenges posed by this global pandemic. We think you will be, too.  

Stay safe, and Geaux Cajuns! 

Dr. Joseph Savoie
President
