About Louisiana State University
LSU is the flagship institution of the state of Louisiana and is one of only 30 universities nationwide holding land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant status.
LSU was founded by the Louisiana General Assembly in 1853 under the name Louisiana State Seminary of Learning and Military Academy and was located near Pineville, La., with the first session beginning on Jan. 2, 1860. Since that time, LSU has served the people of Louisiana, the region, the nation, and the world through extensive, multipurpose programs encompassing instruction, research, and public service. The University brings in more than $150 million annually in outside research grants and contracts, a significant factor for the Louisiana economy.
LSU is located on more than 2,000 acres and is known for the 1,200 large oak trees, valued at over $50 million. The campus landscaping was called “a botanical joy” in its listing among the 20 best campuses in America in Thomas Gaines’s The Campus as a Work of Art. LSU homes two Indian Mounds that were created by Native Americans more than 5,000 years ago and functioned as territorial markers or symbols of group identity. In 1999, the mounds were placed on the National Regis...ter of Historic Places.
LSU Flagship 2020
LSU represents the largest institution of higher education in the state of Louisiana and is the only public university in the state to be designated a Carnegie Research University with Very High Research Activity. Among a handful of distinguished universities to enjoy land, sea, and space grant status, LSU offers vital research opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students as it transforms new technology into enterprise and lends expertise to solve endemic problems. Guided by the foundation of the National Flagship Agenda, Flagship 2020 is focused on the goals of learning, discovery, diversity, and engagement. Among institutions of higher education, LSU is uniquely situated to provide a rich educational experience. Our success as the Flagship campus has been attained not only by harnessing the intellectual capital of our faculty and students, but also by exploiting the geographic and cultural capital found only in Louisiana.
