The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, which includes Andy Lester, Spencer Fane Partner, is forming a task force to review the status of Oklahoma’s higher education system and make recommendations to improve and modernize it.
In a March 24 article in The Oklahoman, Andy was quoted during a board meeting discussing the formation of the task force. Andy mentioned, “I see this task force as a wonderful opportunity to set the record straight, fix what needs to be fixed and move forward. I’m very supportive of it.”
The article goes on to mention that the task force will examine every aspect of Oklahoma’s system of 25 public colleges and universities, including college degree completion initiatives, academic program innovations and online education, business community partnerships to meet workforce needs, restructuring and realignments within the system to reduce costs and deliver degree programs more efficiently, and operational efficiencies and technology.”
