Diversity and Inclusion


The LSU Science Office of Diversity and Inclusion promotes excellence through a culture of diversity and inclusion. We are committed to fostering exemplary educational and professional opportunities that supports individuals from all backgrounds, regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, religion, accessibility, or socioeconomic status. We firmly believe that the College’s mission to serve as the primary intellectual resource for Louisiana is intimately tied to our ability to support the recruitment, retention, and advancement of individuals that make up the rich cultural heritage of our great state. We embrace these traditions and welcome great minds from across the globe to contribute to elevating LSU Science to the highest levels of excellence among major research universities in the U.S. and abroad. We recognize that our science benefits from diverse viewpoints, experiences, and perspectives and that the promotion of inclusive excellence is key to all that we do.
