GRAD Act Dashboard - Southern University, New Orleans
The GRAD Act was approved by the Louisiana legislature and signed into law by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal in June, 2010. As a result, the Board of Regents has entered into six-year performance agreements with each public postsecondary institution. In the agreements, the institution commits to meeting specific performance objectives in exchange for increased tuition authority and eligibility to participate in certain autonomies.
