Dear Students,

Welcome to LSU!

This is the beginning of my fourth year as the Associate Vice President and Dean of students. If we have not met, I urge you to introduce yourself to me and share your LSU story. I like to be called Mari (pronounced Mah-dee).

The Office of the Dean of Students has been busy planning for the Fall 2018 semester. The priorities of our office include leadership & involvement; diversity, inclusion & cultural competence; holistic student development; and safety & security. Some of our plans for this semester include:

I also want to make you aware of a campus-wide initiative called LSU Cares; which is dedicated to the well-being of students and the promotion of a community that cares about each of its members. If at any time you have a concern or complaint, please submit your concern through the LSU Cares webpage.

Our staff are here to be your advocates, cheerleaders, and supporters throughout your college experience. I encourage you to take advantage of the events, services, and resources available through the Office of the Dean of Students. Geaux Tigers!


Mari Fuentes-Martin, Ed.D.
Associate Vice President & Dean of Students
