LA Global Alliance
Louisiana Global Alliance
Southern University and A&M College, Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC), and Louisiana Economic Development (LED) recently signed an MOU entitled the Louisiana Interagency Alliance for Global Workforce Development. The ALLIANCE was created to establish a unique interagency agreement to position SU as a world-class institution of learning that will allow it to strengthen offerings provided to its students and focus their transition into the Louisiana workforce. The ALLIANCE touches on three key areas: academic and workforce development; services between SU and the State of Louisiana to strengthen the workforce; and research and innovation to take SU’s land grant mission and pair it with global opportunities. Proposed SU Centers of Strength also will be developed and implemented to better align curricula with workforce needs, develop new research experiences, and expand community, business, and industry partnership alliances.
