The STAR Employer program was created to recognize employers that make significant contributions to the LSU Olinde Career Center. Employer gifts have played an important role in building and sustaining services essential to student success.

Your sponsorship promotes your organization as an LSU Olinde Career Center supporter, advancing programs designed to develop LSU talent for your enterprise’s future...tomorrow’s leaders. Your annual gift of $2,000 or more as an LSU Olinde Career Center Star Employer will be recognized through a variety of public and campus-specific vehicles. Our staff will help you custom-design and target the promotion of your campus visits, generate Star Employer reports on activities at the LSU Olinde Career Center, and assist you in arranging all aspects of your recruitment visit. We accept gifts of “in-kind” services and equipment and recognize them at their monetary value.


Contributions for becoming a STAR Employer can be made through our online STAR Employer Commitment Form or by submitting a printable Star Employer Commitment Form
