A short video collage commemorating Dr. Ray P. Authément's involvement and contributions to the University of Louisiana. This video was shown on December 4, 2009, at the UL System Board Meeting where Dr. Authément was awarded the honor of President Emeritus.

As the video shows, Authément spent 4 years at UL as a student, 8 years on the faculty, 8 years in the administration, and 34 years as president for a total of 54 years, most of his life.  And that does not include the fact that he has returned to the faculty after stepping down as president.
