Dr. Nan Adams, professor of educational leadership, and her leadership policy class attended the joint Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) and Board of Regents (BoR) meeting in Baton Rouge this past June.

This trip provided students with the opportunity to attend either the BESE or BoR meeting depending on their career interests. Students with a focus on school leadership attended the meeting for BESE, the administrative body for all Louisiana public elementary and secondary schools, while those with a focus on higher education administration attended the meeting for BoR, whose mission is to serve “as the state’s leading force for talent development through quality, affordable post-secondary education for all.”

Through this opportunity, the student attendees were able to gain a better understanding and first-hand experience of the working of these two important educational governing bodies.
