The eight colleges of the University are the heart and soul of our Ragin’Cajun Success and have been for over 100 years!  The University remains dedicated to maintaining strong degree programs that turn out successful “ready for the workforce” graduates. 

Frankly, our University, like so many across the country, is challenged in this economy to maintain and improve the quality of our programs. Not long ago, the University was supported through state funding at a rate of 60% to 40% self generated.  As a result of continued state budget cuts, that ratio has flipped in just four and a half short years to 40% state supported and 60% self generated. Where does the University make up the short fall? 

You can help!  There are several initiatives which assist academics:   The Campaign for Scholarships, Endowed Chairs and Professorships, Faculty Development Funds, College and Department Enhancement Funds.
