    Re: "Flagship"?

    A state that encourages competition trying to raise several schools in status? What?

    Come on. The Louisiana legislature is not interested in doing what WORKS, they want to do it the way they've always done it. lsu is apparently too crappy to be able to compete with another school, so it has to be propped up and protected by the state government. If they really were everything they pretend to be, then open competition would not threaten their status.

    The education "system" in Louisiana reminds me so much of the old state-owned enterprise system in the USSR and People's Republic of China. Prop 'em up, subsidize 'em, and restrict competition. That model sure proved effective, so I guess it's understandable why the Louisiana government would want to emulate it.

    Open competition would force LSU to be more competitive.

    I wish we could get LSUS under Tech that would be huge boost, I don't know how many times I've heard "I went to Tech for my undergrad but had to lsu to get my MD" Not to mention we could probably integrate our Biomed/Nano more and become a medical research facility. Imagine in 5 years "This amazing new treatment that Louisiana Tech has invented will eliminate cancer 100% with Zero chance of recurrance."

    If you fail out at Tech, you can always go teach at lsu

    It's all semantics, really. Louisiana has a fouled up and confusing higher education "system." A medical student is no more a student of "LSU" as one would traditionally think of it than someone at UNO, and no more part of the same school than ULM and ULL students. Yes, they are under the same system umbrella, but they are separate institutions.

    For whatever reason, LSU-HSC-S bears the full "Louisiana State University" monicker, but it is a separate institution from the school in BR (and from the HSC in New Orleans, for that matter). If we had just one university system (which makes the most sense for a state this size), it might be a little less confusing.

    I like the way Georgia does it (surprise!). One university system (so Ga Tech and UGA are in the same system, even though clearly not the same school) and the med school is called "Medical College of Georgia" and is part of the same system.

    I think this is one more way that the legislature came up with to create the "flagship myth." The med schools have no more to do with the campus in BR than ULM's pharmacy school has to do with Tech.

    I've never heard that. I think I would have preferred never to have known that. :bigcry:

    The answer is obviously....$$$$$$$$$

    It is that type of parochial thinking that has dominated Tech for far too long. And the level of inbreeding in Tech's top administration bears that out.

    If FJayTaylor had been asked the same question, we'd have a damned pharmacy school in Lincoln Parish! I think DR would have also quickly taken the opportunity.
