Chevron Continues to Support LSU through $850,000 Philanthropic Gift

chevron2017Chevron, through its University Partnership Program, generously donated $850,000 to the LSU Foundation in support of 34 individual units across campus, including the E.J. Ourso College of Business, College of Engineering, College of Science, Student Life and 15 student organizations.

With this donation, Chevron has donated more than $15 million to advance academic excellence at Louisiana State University. On March 16, LSU hosted a lunch to recognize Chevron’s longstanding partnership with and continued philanthropic commitment to the university.

“We are grateful for Chevron’s continued commitment to foster the leadership potential of our students,” said Rick Koubek, executive vice president and provost. “Thanks to our longstanding partnership, together we are preparing today’s students to become the leaders of tomorrow.” 

Chevron’s University Partnership Program further reinforces its deep-rooted partnership and commitment to LSU and positions both organizations to mutually benefit and excel even further. As Chevron continues to invest in LSU students, the students are becoming true leaders of the tomorrow’s workforce and the next generation.

“Over the past two decades, Chevron has been an instrumental recruiting partner, not only for the LSU Olinde Career Center but for the entire LSU campus. Chevron continues to invest and recruit our best and brightest students in a vast array of disciplines and majors,” said Trey Truitt, associate director of employment services at the LSU Olinde Career Center. “Tigers working for Chevron are afforded opportunities to grow in their field of choice and expand their careers, but the unique opportunity comes when they share in the desire to re-invest, recruit and hire the next generation of LSU graduates. This long standing and continual effort is the keystone of the mutual relationship between LSU and our partners at Chevron.”

With a focus on leadership and energy, Chevron’s new LSU initiative, the Chevron Energy Leaders Scholarship Program, works in tandem with its Chevron Leadership Academy. The program collaborates with the E.J Ourso College of Business, College of Engineering and College of Science to award Chevron Scholarships to more than 25 students and support programmatic activities.
