BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News) – Grambling State University President Frank G. Pogue announced a comprehensive review of the university at regular business meeting of the board.

At that meeting, Pogue thanked the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System and System President Sandra Woodley for their support.

"I think all of you know over the past several days, Grambling State University has received quite a bit of national and international attention.  I want to thank UL System President Sandra Woodley for her support and express profound appreciation to members of the Board for your support, as well.  Thank you for supporting Grambling State University," said Pogue. 

Grambling football players ended a boycott yesterday that brought national attention to facility and resource issues at the historically black university.

"I believe good things can come from creative tension.  You can use creative tension to bring attention to the needs of society.  In this case we are using it to bring attention to something larger than athletics - larger than football.  What we are addressing today is symptomatic of something larger that exists on our campus, our financial plight.  We have serious needs across the university community.  I intend to work closely with Dr. Woodley to develop and conduct a comprehensive review of Grambling's academics, facilities, student services, athletics, and financial needs to make our university stronger," said Pogue.

The purpose of an institutional review is to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the institution and make recommendations for improvement.  Several institutional reviews have been conducted at UL System universities over the past twelve years, the most recent one at the University of New Orleans in 2011.

This will be Grambling's second institutional review.  The first was conducted in 2002 by a team of six consultants that yielded 76 recommendations.
