|ULS board passes on Cofer; Moffitt named new president|
University of Louisiana-Monroe President Dr. James E. Cofer will remain at ULM.
That's the case because the board of supervisors for the University of Louisiana System on Wednesday tapped Micheal Randy Moffitt as the next president of the ULS.
Moffitt will replace outgoing president Sally Clausen, who resigned earlier this year to become state commissioner of higher education.
The board of supervisors met in executive session after interviewing three finalists for the position.
In addition to Cofer and Moffitt, who currently is president of Southeastern Louisiana University, board members interviewed Kim Hunter Reed, a longtime associate of Clausen. Reed's relationship with Clausen dates to Gov. Edwin Edwards' fourth term in office. Reed was Edwards' press secretary from 1992-1996, while Clausen served as Edwards' education advisor during that period.
Following the announcement of Moffitt's selection, Cofer issued a statement in which he praised Moffitt.
"I offer my sincere congratulations and my support to Dr. Moffett as he assumes the great responsibility of the UL System presidency," Cofer said in the statement. "I have known him for more than six years, and I am confident in his abilities to successfully lead the UL System."
Cofer said the new president had his support as Moffitt "assumes the great responsibility of the UL System presidency."
Cofer touted his own accomplishments during the six years and said he will continue that work.
"We will continue to build upon our momentum. We will continue to focus on the strength of our intellectual infrastructure: our scholars rank among the nation's best, our innovative course redesign and pedagogy result in student success, and our programs gain national recognition," Cofer said.
Moffitt comes to the UL system presidency after more than seven years at the helm of Southeastern.
Moffitt became president at Southeastern after working his way up through the ranks of the faculty and administration in a career spanning more than 30 years.
He received his bachelor's degree from Louisiana Tech University and a master's degree in education from Northwestern.
In 1980, Moffitt was awarded a doctorate in education from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
