LSU and the state’s largest ports have formed an alliance to advance cyber talent and at the same time protect critical infrastructure. LSU President William Tate said the partnership allows students to receive training and research opportunities with the state’s largest ports.
LSU and six major Louisiana ports, including the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, plan to work together to develop talent, perform research and promote business development related to port cybersecurity.
William F. Tate, LSU President says, “I was really moved by the fact that folks fought to have a world class university. We’re here on this tour to hear from them, to understand how we can be better, take it back to the brain trust, if you will, and execute a plan so our Scholarship First agenda, which is about agriculture, biomedical sciences, coastal research, defense, including ROTC and cyber and energy, we know we’re going to do that, but we want to know what else we need to do.”
The LSU Scholarship First bus tour with President William Tate made a scheduled stop Monday at the site in Pineville where the state’s flagship university had its beginnings in 1860 as Louisiana State Seminary of Learning and Military Academy.

The drought is “showing us the other extreme,” said Clint Willson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at LSU and director of its Center for River Studies. “We’ve engineered it to promote this navigation and enable the commerce and the trade and reduce the risk for communities and ports.
