Our Mission

To engage, retain, and graduate a diverse student population for success at LSU and beyond.

We enhance learning by fostering critical thinking, ethical responsibility, and the cultivation of active healthy lives to create a transformative university experience.


An environment that fosters student success and enhances the mission of LSU.

With budget and other challenges facing LSU on an ongoing basis, the departments within our division offer a solid foundation for student affairs to the university and its students. The greatest of these strengths is our staff. Our outstanding teams of dedicated, knowledgeable, highly trained professionals are positioned across campus and maintain a student-centered philosophy and developmental focus.

Our organizations, programs, services, and facilities have been nationally recognized for excellence and innovation. We are eager to serve as advocates and champions for students and to continually improve our effectiveness in using resources to create, tailor, and execute initiatives to meet their needs. Additionally, we are a top campus employer of student workers and provide numerous professional development opportunities for students working within our division.

The core of our daily work incorporates values of character, collaboration, community, ethics, and stewardship. In line with the university's strategic plan, our goals center on discovery, diversity, engagement, excellence, and learning in guiding us to strengthen the scope of the success-oriented programs, services, and resources we offer students.
