Occupational therapy program to stay until Delta gets degree

ULM Hawkeye

University Pres. Nick Bruno said students and faculty associated with the occupational therapy program need not fear the program cut.
Though the program will eventually be cut from the University in accordance with the LAGRAD Act, Bruno said the University will not abandon the program until Delta Community College installs the degree program there.
“I want our students to know they’re not just going ot be thrown out on the street,” Bruno said.
The state of Louisiana is requiring four-year universities to end associate degree programs in an effort to send more students to community colleges.
Schools performing well on GRAD Act requirements have more autonomy to operate without state oversight.
