Narrative

University of Louisiana System Policy and Procedures Memoranda Chapter III, Section IV Role, Contractual Arrangements, Benefits, Expenses, and Evaluations of Presidents states that the president of an institution serves as its chief executive officer. Selected according to the procedures included in the University of Louisiana policy statement (FS III.II.A-1) [Page: 1] , Dr. Peter Fos (see Vitae) serves as the chief executive officer of The University of New Orleans. Dr. Fos’ primary responsibility is to the institution. Dr. Fos reports to the University of Louisiana System through the President of the system, Dr. Sandra K. Woodley.

According to University of Louisiana System Bylaw Section II Officers, the Chair serves as the presiding officer of the UL System Board. According to Louisiana Revised Statute 17:3205 enacted in July 1975, “No member of the faculty and no officer or employee of a university or college shall be eligible hereafter for appointment to any board which has authority for his/her appointment.”  This statute prohibits an individual from serving as the chief executive officer of an institution and the presiding officer of a Board. As specified in University of Louisiana System Bylaw Section II Officers, the presiding officer of the Board of Supervisors of the University of Louisiana System is the Chair, elected annually by the board. Mr. E. Gerald Hebert currently serves as Chair.
