    LaTech Tech 2020 Benchmarks

    I wonder how far along we are to reaching these goals of Tech 2020.






    From latech.edu
    • Graduation rate of 70%
    • First-year retention rate of 85%
    • 25% of first-time freshmen in the top 10% of their high school class
    • 20-25% graduate students
    • Triple our research productivity
    • 10 patents granted per year
    • 20 active tenants & five graduates per year from our Technology Incubators
    • Research Park with six tenant companies
    • Triple our endowment
    It is the considered judgment of the Louisiana Tech University Family that an enrollment of 15,000 students would maximize the achievement of these goals.

    2014 = 15.31% (1689)
    2015 = 13.65% (1689 total)

    6-year graduation rate

    Fall 2006 class = 48%
    Fall 2007 class = 50%
    Fall 2008 class = 54%
    Fall 2009 class = 53%

    First-time freshmen in top 10% of HS class:

    2013 = 24.0%
    2014 = 24.0%
    2015 = 24.0%

    It's a shame too, because "2020" looks good on fund-raising emails.

    2020 is coming up. How did we do with Tech 2020? Did we set the bar too high?

    Still waiting for the release on the progress for the Tech Centennial. Probably won't get one for the same reason - goals were not close to being achieved.

    It's ok to set the bar high, but not so high as to not attain anything.

    Re: Tech 2020 Benchmarks

    FYI- There has been a radical shift of the University funding model over the last decade, as state direct institutional support to higher education has been heavily slashed and that shortfall being shifted to students in the form of tuition.

    This data is from 2016, and, as I think most of you know, the cuts didnít end then.
