Students selected as members of the Tiger Twelve are current, full-time students, who have maintained at least a 2.5 GPA and best exemplified the seven tenets outlined in the LSU Commitment to Community, a statement of LSU’s basic principles as an academic community. It was crafted by a committee of students, faculty and staff in 1995 and states the expectations for each LSU community member.
This year’s recognition coincides with the 20th anniversary of the LSU Commitment to Community.

The Office of the Dean of Students transforms lives by facilitating opportunities and experiences to discover, engage and learn in a diverse, inclusive and just community while promoting social responsibility. For more information about the Tiger Twelve, visit www.lsu.edu/tigertwelve
