Research at LSU
LSU's research enterprise spans across the entire campus, bringing diverse disciplines together as well as supporting individual faculty in their quest to understand our society and address our world's great challenges. LSU holds a Carnegie Classification of Research Active/Very High, and is the state's Flagship University. Our mission as a land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant institution is dedicated to making Louisiana, and our world a better place.
Research at LSU is supported through a collection of internal grants, special intiatives, economic development infrastructure, and a set of strategic research areas which point toward an interdisciplinary future. The Council on Research provides guidance and faculty input into our initiatives and programs, while recognizing excellence in our faculty.
