Our Strategic Challenges
LSU will provide positively influence education in Louisiana and promote a culture of lifelong learning.
As a lifelong educational partner, LSU will be a global leader in the positive transformation of education from cradle to career and beyond.
Improve Pre-K-12 Education
LSU will proactively impact the educational journey of Louisiana’s PreK-12 student population.
Advance Higher Education
LSU will provide relevant, transformative, and innovative education at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Enhance Continuing Education
LSU will further develop and enhance its commitment to expanding the availability of LSU educational opportunities by significantly growing its online presence through the LSU Unlimited initiative.
Access to quality education has historically been a challenge for Americans with limited financial means, as well as minority populations. Unfortunately, Louisiana ranks as one of the least educated states, and the K-12 public education systems are often ranked near the bottom of national lists.
LSU conducts outreach to K-12 educators and provides student mentorships in local school districts in efforts to expand college readiness and offer best practices based on current research and scholarship. Events like Ocean Commotion, Ag Magic, and Sixth Grade Day give K-12 students the opportunity to visit campus for hands-on educational activities.
