Implementation Plans

Act 803 of the Louisiana Legislature’s 2014 Regular Session established the WISE Fund to increase degree and certificate production in high demand fields and spur additional research and innovation in alignment with industry needs.  Of the $40 million appropriated, $36.5 million is distributed to colleges and universities. In order to receive its distribution, each campus submitted an implementation plan approved by its management board, the WISE Council and the Louisiana Board of Regents.

The following WISE implementation plans outline the unique ways each institution will work to address the state’s workforce and innovation needs.
