Whereas the Enterprise Campus at Louisiana Tech University represents the continuation of a new era for our institution, signifying the commitment that the University has made to construct strong research partnerships with the private sector;

Whereas the Enterprise Campus will enrich learning opportunities for students, provide research synergies between tenant companies and faculty, and accelerate technology transfer through collaboration with those most effective at commercializing technologies;

Whereas the Enterprise Campus has the potential to stimulate interactions and connectedness of the different academic colleges of the University and inspire shared vision that if part of the University receives a benefit, the overall system is often benefited;

Whereas the Enterprise Campus is a vibrant extension of Louisiana Tech’s main campus, connecting it closely with downtown Ruston and creating an attractive business location and the opportunity to converge with a traditional college environment and forward-looking commercial research district;


That we, the Louisiana Tech University Senate, commend and praise the leadership of University President Dr. Daniel Reneau and the work of Dr. Leslie Guice, the leaders of state and local government, and the friends of Louisiana Tech who have teamed to make the Enterprise Campus a reality.

RESOLVED THIS DAY, THE 16th OF November, 2009
