Hammond, LA--- Dr. Jim Henderson, President and CEO of the University of Louisiana System, will be featured at the Tuesday, Dec. 12, Greater Hammond Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Southeastern Louisiana University's Student Union Ballroom.

"We are thrilled to host Dr. Henderson and hope business and community leaders will take this opportunity to learn more about the future of higher education in our great state," Chamber President and CEO Melissa Bordelon said.

Henderson will share the tenets of the recently-released “ULS Strategic Framework,” in which the system’s nine campuses collectively pledge to graduate an additional 150,000 students by the year 2020. This aggressive agenda can create the most highly-educated Louisiana population in history and will poise the state for unsurpassed success.

The Chamber encourages regional participation in the luncheon as the University of Louisiana System's nine higher education institutions are vital partners in our communities continued growth. ULS universities include Southeastern Louisiana University, Grambling State University, Louisiana Tech University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, University of Louisiana at Monroe, and the University of New Orleans.

Tickets for the luncheon are $30 and reserved tables of eight (8) are $390. Pre-registration is required. The luncheon is open to the general public and will begin at 11:15 a.m.
