Dr. Joseph Savoie is the sixth president of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Savoie was formerly the Commissioner of Higher Education for the State of Louisiana, where he was involved in several major postsecondary education reforms, including:
- the restructuring of higher education governance;
- creation of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System;
- teacher, education, and school reform initiatives;
- the state’s Master Plan for Public Postsecondary Education; and
- the promotion of collaboration within the entire education community.
Under his leadership, financial support for public postsecondary education more than doubled and Louisiana’s colleges and universities became more engaged in addressing Louisiana’s economic and social challenges.
