LSU Fundraising Priorities

Among the many opportunities to support Student Life & Enrollment are three university priorities:


  • The LSU Center for Academic Success provides students with strategies, support and tools needed to be successful in their majors, stay in school and graduate in a timely manner. Many students admit they would not have passed critical courses without this free service—which could not be available without philanthropic support. An endowment of $5 million will provide perpetual, stable funding for this nationally recognized program.
  • LSU’s Recruitment & Enrollment Center will create an identifiable and spirited place to welcome visitors. With a $7 million goal, the current space in Pleasant Hall will be renovated and a Geaux Center in the LSU Student Union will open. Both spaces will allow students’ experiences visiting LSU to be more intuitive and clear, and the renovation will incorporate LSU spirit and graphics for a special introduction to our unique campus.
  • The newly established LSU Veteran & Military Student Services serves veterans and service members as they pursue a new mission: obtaining a college degree. In recognition of and appreciation for the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve our country,  LSU will renovate an area near the LSU Bookstore – in the heart of campus – to meet our veterans’ needs. The $1.5 million goal will outfit this space to provide programming for student veterans.

Our development team builds long-lasting relationships with donors to enhance the student experience and drive economic development. We are dedicated to stewarding each gift to maximize donors’ impact on making LSU one of the best universities in the world. We can help you connect with LSU Student Life & Enrollment in a way that is meaningful to you. If you would like to speak to us about your philanthropic investment, please contact us anytime.
