It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I extend a warm welcome to the 2024 University of Louisiana System Academic Summit hosted by Louisiana Tech University. The summit is an annual event that provides a unique opportunity for intellectual exchange, collaboration, and innovation among the students and faculty of the system’s nine institutions. We are excited to have you join us to celebrate the collective achievements of our academic communities.

I am honored to share our beloved university with the brightest minds from diverse disciplines to engage in thought-provoking discussions and foster meaningful connections. During your visit, I invite you to explore our historic and beautiful campus and to enjoy the natural beauty, rich history, and vibrant culture of Ruston and Lincoln Parish.
