COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
LSU Law is committed to diversity. Geographically our students hail from 28 states, including Louisiana, and eight foreign countries. We are an engaged community made up of citizens from the U.S. and abroad, culturally diverse with students of varying ethnic backgrounds and roughly half female and half male. Our students have served in the military, they’ve worked as teachers, journalists, social workers, and in government, politics, and other areas of interest. They are athletes, pilots, chefs, activists, comedians, and more. They bring a wealth of life and work experiences to our community and they enhance our classrooms with their differences. Our community is vibrant, inclusive, and intellectual. We pride ourselves on this accomplishment.
We invite you to join our community. For more information on admission, please contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com, or call 225/578-8646.
LSU Community—Diversity Statement
Diversity is fundamental to LSU’s mission and the entire University System is committed to creating and maintaining a living and learning environment that embraces individual difference. Cultural inclusion is of highest priority.
As a member of the LSU community, all campuses recognize that achieving national prominence depends on the human spirit, participation, and dedicated work of the entire University community. Our collective national flagship agendas will be realized by bringing together diverse ideas, perspectives, skills, and talents of the nation’s pre-eminent scholars, brightest students, and leading higher education professionals.
Through its Commitment to Community, the LSU community strives to create an inclusive, respectful, intellectually challenging climate that embraces individual difference in race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, spirituality, socio-economic status, disability, family status, experiences, opinions and ideas.
The LSU community proactively cultivates and sustains a campus environment that values open dialogue, cooperation, shared responsibility, mutual respect, and cultural competence—the driving forces that enrich and enhance cutting edge research, first-rate teaching, and engaging community outreach activities.
