Grambling State champion’s higher education at Northern Exposure

May 7, University joins Governor Edwards and Citizen-Lobbying Effort


Grambling, La – Grambling State University announced it will join Northern Exposure on May 7, 2019, Louisiana’s largest annual, citizen-lobbying effort, to help advocate for higher education and issues facing North Louisiana.

“As engaged citizens, we all have a responsibility to ensure our voices are heard as our legislators work to grow Louisiana’s future,” said President Rick Gallot. “We are honored to help represent North Louisiana and share the positive impact of our HBCUs and the collective strength of the University of Louisiana System.”

This year the University students, administrators and faculty will join the event as a Silver sponsor. They will travel on May 7 to join Governor John Bel Edwards, legislators, and sister University of Louisiana System schools to share the importance of supporting higher education’s key need areas including faculty raises and infrastructure improvements.
