    Yeah, the headline on the school website is "Louisiana Tech makes USNWR National Universities list for eighth straight year" .... no more trying to imply that they are better than everyone else.

    So to be clear, they have now regressed in the two most important school rankings: dropped from T1 to T2 in the USNWR, and.....much more important....from R2 to R3 in the Carniege study.

    Definitely not a very good trend they got going there.

    Depends on your perspective. I think it is a GREAT trend.

    From the article:

    "The rankings are based largely on data provided by the universities,"

    In other words. COMPLETE BULL____.

    .......time for a check up on La Tur and it's submitted stats......we exceed them in alumni, enrollment, reasearch, budget, and other areas but ranking, aithough higher in other measurements, still falls short here.....need to see why?

    EXACTLY. This is why this has been nothing but horse____e for years. I would love to have an unbiased review of all the 'data' that @Ruston has been feeding them all this time.

    I understood that the percentage of alumni giving was a major difference between LaTex and UL. I also understood that LaTex classified a part of the graduation fee as alumni giving in order to increase the percentage reported. Gaming the system.

    Who at UL is responsible for providing up to date data to USN&WR? We should be Tier 1 based on previous data that LA Tech submitted that made them Tier 1 before their demotion. While R1 is the designation we desire, why not get Tier 1 as well now? It may be based on a lot of subjective data, but it is what high schools use as university data. We need to understand the criteria and take steps to reach the required levels. It creates perception and dictates in part how we are perceived. So, why not focus on it now as we continue to pursue R1 status?

Every time LSU and the legislature would try to shut down programs, he would move money around and save the program. I can personally say he was responsible for keeping the Masters Geology program. Instead of us getting cut, Nicholls and Tech got whacked.
    On the athletic front he went D1 and broke from all of our traditional rivals. He knew sports was a difference maker for us over the other regional schools. Did he make mistakes? Yes, quite a few of them. He was penny wise and pound foolish. But make no mistake, without the Fossil we would not all be here talking about many of the great things that are happening at our University.
    FYI U S news is a magazine. Academicians who have credibility do not recognize their analyses and positions. U L is on the cusp of a Carnegie 1 rating. Required elements would be research dollars, phds, and support staff. U L recently reported 124 million to N S F for last yr report. 100 million is the min requirement. PhDs last yr were at 66. Uni of Oregon has same # phds. U L is getting number of associated support staff in line to become tier one. We should be very close in next round of year 2021. 89% chance for Approval. Go Cajuns!!

    Do you have a list, or a link to, the qualifications for each classification? I have searched for it, but did not have much luck.
