About Research & Economic Development
The Office of Research & Economic Development (ORED) is responsible for supporting and promoting the research enterprise at LSU. Our mission is to
support a holistic, university-wide environment in which advanced research, effective scholarship, and economic development can thrive and support the LSU Strategic Plan 2025.
We support this effort through strategic planning, development of workshops, support for pre-award grant services, public engagement, compliance oversight and other research administration. Our research focal areas outline seven interdisciplinary research topics that we support with coordinated grant writing and initiatives.
