Joe May, president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System says new business model needed for LCTCS

The Town Talk
In the next few years, Central Louisiana's antiquated trade-school way of training many in its work force could blossom into an integrated higher-education system that will better prepare students and react swiftly to employers' needs.

The preview of the future came Monday from Joe May, president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System.

May said statewide there continues to be unprecedented demand in students wanting to enroll in technical and community colleges to enhance their job and earning prospects while state dollars that support the system are declining.

"What I think limited resources will provide is opportunity" to overhaul a system in bad need of transformation, May told members of the Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce during a Strategic Luncheon at the Best Western in Alexandria.

"What we're really talking about is a business model" change.

The model includes providing a combination community college-technical school in Alexandria where college credits earned are transferable to four-year universities and providing modern facilities for technicians in training, May said.
