LSU CARES facilitates community development and student success through providing a mechanism to report situations and students of concern in an appropriate way. 


Through providing contact, resources, support, and accountability, LSU CARES allows members of the LSU community to support others in times of need. 


Because the success of individuals often depends on the support of others, LSU CARES seeks to encourage the individuals to help one another succeed and to work as a whole to ensure that LSU is a caring, supportive, purposeful, and engaged community.
