Within Louisiana State University’s Flagship Agenda 2020, Transforming Lives, there is a commitment to diversity and community outreach that extends beyond the intellectual journey to the essentials of advocacy, support, and cultivation of diversity and inclusion initiatives. The Office of Equity, Diversity & Community Outreach (EDCO) represents two out of the four pillars (Discovery, Diversity, Engagement, and Learning) of the LSU experience. Diversity and Engagement are critical to the intellectual and personal development of all our students, staff and faculty.
We BELIEVE that with
DIVERSE PEOPLE comes DIVERSE TALENTS.
