Resources for You in Advising Your Student

On behalf of LSU, the Division of Student Life, and the Office of the Dean of Students, the mission of Student Advocacy & Accountability is to engage students on issues of community membership, responsible decision making, critical thinking, and Informed citizenship. We promote and foster cognitive, personal, professional, and academic development through: proactive education and intervention, identification of resources, and encouraging healthy life choices. We accomplish this through communicating, assessing, referring, and educating to achieve positive change.

With the LSU Commitment to Community as a guiding principle, our belief is that students should not only accomplish academic goals, but also to do so in a healthy and encouraging environment which fosters personal growth and development.

We are here to support your student's success and personal development as members of the LSU community by promoting academic integrity and appropriate standards of conduct through the Code of Student Conduct.  To that end, we encourage you to familiarize yourself not only with the Code, but also with The Accountability Process and associated Student Rights and Responsibilities at LSU.  Exercising an understanding of both Academic Integrity and LSU Policies is essential in being a productive LSU community member.  When your student finds themselves engaged in the Accountability Process, we want you to know what to expect.  You will find resources here that may help, in addition you are welcome to contact our office directly at 225-578-4307 or dossaa@lsu.edu.
