News alert: UL System president announces retirement
After more than 40 years in higher education, including four years as president of the University of Louisiana System and seven years as president of Southeastern Louisiana University, Randy Moffett will retire in early fall. "It has been a privilege to serve the people of Louisiana and higher education. Over the course of my career I have had opportunities to take positions out of this state, but my heart has always kept me in Louisiana. While I will miss working with a tremendous board, tenacious university presidents, and talented staff, I am looking forward to spending more time with my family," said Moffett. UL System Board Chair Wayne Parker plans to call a meeting of the board’s executive committee to discuss next steps for finding Moffett’s successor. "We will move as quickly as possible to get the process started. I have asked Dr. Moffett to stay and assist in the search,” says Parker. A native of Jonesboro, Moffett became the seventh UL System president in July 2008. Over the past four years, according to a press release, Moffett guided the search and selection of five university presidents, shepherded the movement of the University of New Orleans into the UL System, and guided the system's universities through a series of budget reductions while improving operational efficiency, accountability and performance. Moffett previously served seven years as president of Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, one of the nine universities that make up the University of Louisiana System. Prior to his campus presidency, he worked at Southeastern in various staff, faculty and administrative positions for more than 25 years.
