Issues or behavior concerning poor or struggling academic performance (e.g., excessive class absences, excessive tardiness, failing or poor grades, etc.), not academic misconduct, are forwarded to the Academic Intervention Team (AIT).

Experiencing an incident of sexual assault, discrimination, or violation is shocking, confusing, and disorienting. Afterwards, you may not know what to do or where to go.

The goal of LSU's Office of Civil Rights & Title IX is to ensure you receive appropriate support, receive due process, and are treated respectfully and fairly.

Connect to Domestic and Sexual Violence Support and Reporting

We want victims of hazing, or anyone who knows or suspects someone who’s a victim of hazing, to feel empowered to report incidents within the university community. You will never suffer university consequences for filing a report about hazing or suspected hazing. LSU prohibits hazing, in any form, of any member of the university community.
