2017 Summit on the Future of Higher Education in Central Louisiana 

CLEDA is proud to host the 2017 Summit on the Future of Higher Education in Central Louisiana. This region is home to four major teaching and training institutions who, together, can provide an opportunity-rich environment for the residents of our parishes.

Please join us from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM on Monday, November 13 in the Alexandria Convention Hall for this important set of presentations. You will hear straight from the leaders of Northwestern State University, Louisiana College, Louisiana State University of Alexandria, the Central Louisiana Technical College and the Louisiana Board of Regents how we will meet the challenges of the next decade.
