LSU’s Technology, Revenue Generation Task Force Groups to Meet Thursday; Live Streaming Available

BATON ROUGE – Two more meetings of the Task Force Groups of the LSU Transition Advisory Team will take place Thursday, March 7, on the LSU campus.  Both meetings will be streamed live via the Internet.

The Technology Task Force will meet from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and the Revenue Generation Task Force will meet from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in room 1019 of the Energy, Coast and Environment Building.  It will be the second meeting for each group.

Task Forces have been formed to focus on specific areas of priority in the realignment process.  During these meetings, testimony is provided by national and local subject matter experts.  Reports and findings are discussed and input from the public is heard.  Information from the Task Force meetings will become part of a final report to be submitted to LSU’s Transition Advisory Team and ultimately to the LSU Board of Supervisors.

The Technology Task Force is looking at the changing culture, promoting efficiency and encouraging innovation.  Academic research, administration and leveraging data to drive innovation is being reviewed.

The Revenue Generation Task Force is focusing on identifying new revenue streams.  Areas of revenue generation include self-generated streams, governmental (primarily federal) sponsored research and monetized assets.
