Flagship IT Strategy (FITS)

Today, information technology (IT) is one of the most critical tools in higher education; the great universities of the future will be those that have an exemplary IT infrastructure and embrace IT services.

The FITS team sets out to transform LSU from a university that simply tolerates technology to one that truly embraces it. By meeting with task forces of university members who represent information systems, infrastructure, research, student experience, and teaching and learning, we hope to matriculate each of these areas into interrelated enabled fields with as much bleeding edge technology as is reasonably appropriate.

The Flagship IT Strategy will position Louisiana State University to be a national leader among public universities in teaching and learning, research, the student experience, outreach, community service, regional economic development, and promotion of life-long learning.
