Our Mission

Since opening its classrooms to students in 1967, LSUS has become a linchpin in the Shreveport-Bossier educational community. Anchored along the picturesque Red River in southeast Shreveport, the beautifully landscaped LSUS campus serves as home to more than 4,200 students.

"We have nearly 40 undergraduate degree programs and a dozen master's degree programs," Chancellor Vincent Marsala said. "Our highly qualified faculty has the highest percentage of doctoral degrees in the state, and our student-teacher ratio is one of the lowest."

Student access to technology is a top priority. All classrooms have Internet connections - well above the national average of 64 percent - and Moodle, an online course management system, makes course material available to students 24/7. In all, students can sit down in front of nearly 1,000 computers in subject-specific labs, high-traffic areas such as Noel Memorial Library and The Port restaurant, and a campus-wide computer lab with extended hours.
