Celebrating Two Decades of Student Success

In 1999, Governor Mike Foster led the Legislature to establish the Louisiana Community and Technical College System. At that time, Louisiana had fallen behind other states in developing this sector of post-secondary education and training. But our leaders knew our state needed a strong community and technical college system to boost the power of our workforce and economic development engine. Currently among the most productive and fastest growing two-year college systems in the nation, Louisiana’s community and technical colleges have exceeded all expectations and become a highly valued asset for all of Louisiana. As we mark the end of the formative years of our system of colleges, we turn our attention to Louisiana and its future.
