Abstract

Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had a pervasive destructive impact on the educational community in Southeast Louisiana Universities. Decades of research, encompassing hundreds of millions of dollars in federal research grants to some of America's top scientists, were wiped out virtually overnight, along with much of the infrastructure that made them possible. The storms also severely affected the Southeastern Louisiana universities capacity to retain teacher education candidates. Prior to the hurricanes, Louisiana had a strong research and educational capacity and was investing in new projects intended to expand collaborative research among state universities with these natural disasters that changed.
