Distinguished Communicator Medal

During May 2021 Commencement, 53 graduates across eight colleges received the LSU Distinguished Communicator Medal. Recipients of this honor are outstanding writers and speakers, with a strong command of visual literacy and technological communication. LSU Distinguished Communicators also graduate with the LSU Communicator Certificate, launched in Fall 2018. This distinction is the first of its kind in the nation and is sponsored by LSU Communication across the Curriculum (CxC), a nationally recognized program for its excellence in enhancing learning experiences and improving students’ communication skills across all disciplines.
