Welcome from the Dean

Home to award-winning, internationally-acclaimed faculty, CC&E is comprised of two departments, the Department of Oceanography & Coastal Sciences (DOCS) and the Department of Environmental Sciences (ENVS). Known for our high impact contributions to research and education, our research is conducted on the Mississippi River delta, the Gulf coast, and around the world on all continents and oceans. 

It is a great honor to be on the faculty at LSU and to serve as the College of the Coast & Environment’s leader and chief advocate.  Our doors are always open and we welcome your visit. Please let me know how our team may assist you.
