The priorities of our office include leadership & involvement; diversity, inclusion & cultural competence; holistic student development; and safety & security.

LSU’s Commitment to Community serves as a guiding document to assist the entire LSU campus in having pride in our institution and respecting the people who faithfully commit to the principles within the commitment to community. To promote these principles, the Office of the Dean of Students recognizes 12 outstanding seniors, known as the Tiger Twelve, who contribute positively to the life of the campus and surrounding community.

In addition to facilitating and celebrating student leadership, staff members also serve as advocates for student interests and are committed to providing a safe campus environment.
