Our Louisiana 2020: Building the Workforce of Tomorrow
Goal 4: Double the Number of Students Served to 325,000 Annually

The journey to 2020 began with an aggressive enrollment target beginning with a baseline of 164,465 students served in academic programs, workforce development, and adult education. The system, as did the country, experienced a reduction in students attending our colleges reaching a low number of students served of 131.349 in 2016. Since then, the number of students served has reached 161,664 in 2019 and down to 148,206 largely due to closures related to COVID-19; especially affecting students in workforce (non-credit) and adult education programs.
