Students and faculty from across Louisiana discussed how to make higher education accessible for traditional and non-traditional students.

Today UL held the “For our Future” conference at the UL Student Union ballroom.  A discussion among experts in areas such as entrepreneurship, work ethic, diversity and inclusion was also held.

UL leaders say today’s discussion will help improve the state’s colleges.

“It’s important to bring educators together because we have a collective purpose and that’s to prepare the talent that gives our employers a competitive advantage, that strengthens our community, and enrichens our state, and to do this on a campus like the University of Louisiana  at Lafayette that showcases so much about innovation, its just a great win for all of us,” President of the UL System Jim Henderson said.

The theme for the conference was “Aspiring, Adapting, Achieving.”
