LSU-Shreveport has a new chancellor — and he’s no stranger to the local campus.  

From 1981-1994, Larry Clark was a prominent figure at LSUS. He began there as a professor of business law.  Then he moved up to Chairman of the Department of Management & Marketing before being named dean of the College of Business in 1985. Now, he’s been named the school’s new chancellor.

Pending approval by the LSU Board of Supervisors, he’ll begin his new job on July first. Clark is currently dean of the Cameron School of Business at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington.  He was one of four finalists for the chancellor’s position.  All four were interviewed on the LSUS campus between February 10th and 13th — right in the midst of the ice storm.

LSU President and Chancellor F. King Alexander says, “We are pleased to welcome Larry Clark as chancellor of LSU-Shreveport and to the LSU leadership team.  He’s also thanked the members of the search committee and everyone who participated in the search process and provided feedback.  He also thanked interim chancellor Paul Sisson for his service, saying, “His dedication and hard work has not gone un-noticed and we will always be grateful for his commitment to this university.”  He ended by saying, “There are great things happening on the campus, and I look forward to what Larry Clark will do for the future of LSUS”
