NICHOLLS & FLETCHER ANNOUNCE COLLABORATIVE PLAN
"Working Together to Build South Central Louisiana Community"
THIBODAUX - Nicholls State University and Fletcher Technical Community College formally presented a collaborative plan to the Louisiana Board of Regents today. The plan provides greater efficiencies and effectiveness for students in south central Louisiana by establishing transfer agreements, designating specific transfer/cross enrollment to bachelor's degrees and allocating shared facilities, resources and services.
The collaborative plan addresses initiatives proposed by Senate Bill No. 285, filed by Sen. Ben Wayne Nevers, which calls for a comprehensive system of articulation and transfer of credit between and among public and post-secondary educational institutions.
Key points of the Nicholls/Fletcher collaborative plan:
"Fletcher and Nicholls have developed a model relationship, one that goes beyond systems and is focused on the students and providing quality education and opportunities to the citizens of south central Louisiana," Fletcher's Chancellor, Travis Lavigne, added.
