I see the LSU SVM as a future leader in cultural competency, diversity and inclusivity both at the school, campus wide, in our community and at national levels. Institutions make a difference if they are truly committed and we will need to serve as role models for our students, our school and our community. We have a responsibility to the profession, the students and the state to not only provide an inclusive learning environment but to actively teach it in all aspects of our school. The SVM will only continue attract and retain the most talented individuals if we can provide a diverse, inclusive, and positive environment for people to work.
