Galligan is taking over for Dr. F. King Alexander, who is now president of Oregon State University.

News Channel Five spoke to the interim president to get his perspective on the importance of LSUA to Central Louisiana.

“LSU Baton Rouge and some of the other campuses are larger campuses. LSUA offers a different and unique academic experience. It is truly a teaching-centered, student-centered campus within the LSU system,” Galligan said.

This was the first time in over four years that the board has met in Alexandria.
