LSU Establishes School of Collaborative Academic Programs 

LSU recently established the School of Collaborative Academic Programs, which is a multi-college, interdisciplinary and cutting-edge program bridging faculty expertise across disciplines to offer cross-disciplinary curriculums to undergraduate and graduate students. The program involves deep integration across disciplinary boundaries and requires the convergence of knowledge that utilizes the strengths of more than one school or college to address the exceptionally complex problems of the human condition.

The school, housed in the Office of Academic Affairs, will operate under the executive leadership of a program director who will partner with deans from three of the academic colleges. The school will be governed by its policy committee, which includes representation from all of the academic disciplinary colleges on campus. The school is currently seeking applications for the program director position. Find a full job description for the faculty program director here. Individuals are encouraged to nominate candidates or self-nominate for the position. The program will soon be accepting proposals for courses and degree.

Accessibility

LSU is committed to ensuring its online content is accessible to all users, regardless of ability or disability. Per Section 504 of the Workforce Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, all online content, including but not limited to course materials, websites and pdfs, must be compliant according to WCAG 2.0 Level AA and WAI-ARIA 1.0. LSU’s entire online presence must be brought into compliance by August 2019.
