LSU Strategic Planning Survey

January 19, 2022

Dear LSU Community:

This is an exciting time for LSU in so many ways. For two consecutive years, we have established records for the largest, most diverse, and most academically accomplished freshman classes in university history. LSU’s total enrollment is at a new high as we become the university of choice for more students than ever before. Our faculty continue to outperform their peers at other institutions in both the classroom and in their fields of research. The LSU Foundation is well on track to exceed its capital campaign goals. And President Tate has focused LSU towards ‘Scholarship First,’ sustained excellence, and to be a national leader in the areas of coast and environment, agriculture, biotechnology, energy and military, and security studies.

As we turn our attention to the new year, our focus is on capitalizing on this momentum and building a long-term strategic plan that positions LSU to have the greatest impact on our state, region, and country, while also providing a world-class educational experience for the leaders of tomorrow.

To accomplish this, we need your input. It’s vitally important that the strategic plan represents the views of the entire LSU community. While there will be other opportunities for feedback and participation along the way, this is perhaps the most critical stage – the input we receive now will help build the foundation for our future.

The LSU Strategic Planning Survey is anonymous, brief, and will take just a few moments of your time. Please submit your responses on or before February 1, 2022.

Thank you in advance for your time and for helping LSU in its pursuit of excellence.

Mark Bieger
Vice President of Strategy
