Academic Enterprise

The Office of Academic Affairs supports the Executive Vice President and Provost in ensuring university excellence in learning, discovery, engagement, and diversity. The office works closely with the faculty senate and the president to advance LSU using a shared governance model. We also make communication and transparency a hallmark of the office. Lastly, the essence of our academic core--our faculty and staff--are preeminent in everything we do.
