About Us


Our Mission

To engage, retain, and graduate a diverse student population for success at LSU and beyond.

We enhance learning by fostering critical thinking, ethical responsibility, and the cultivation of active healthy lives to create a transformative university experience.

With budget and other challenges facing LSU on an ongoing basis, the departments within Student Affairs offer a solid foundation for student affairs to the university and its students. The greatest of these strengths is our staff. Our outstanding teams of dedicated, knowledgeable, highly trained professionals are positioned across campus and maintain a student-centered philosophy and developmental focus.

Our organizations, programs, services, and facilities have been nationally recognized for excellence and innovation. We are eager to serve as advocates and champions for students and to continually improve our effectiveness in using resources to create, tailor, and execute initiatives to meet their needs. Additionally, as a top campus employer of student workers, we provide abundant professional development opportunities and function as the primary point of contact through Student Aid.

The core of our daily work incorporates the values of character, collaboration, community, ethics, and stewardship. In line with Flagship 2020, strategic goals of discovery, diversity, engagement, excellence, and learning guide us in strengthening the scope of the success-oriented programs, services, and resources we offer to students.
