LSU School of Architecture Diversity Statement
The LSU School of Architecture is committed to an active, intentional, and ongoing engagement with fostering diversity. Providing a multiplicity of voices and viewpoints is essential to our mission of imagining and shaping a more equitable future. An architectural education encourages students to take account of alternative points of view, a skill necessary for communication and leadership in a multifaceted and changing profession. This education prepares students to undertake the shared obligation of achieving a more just and inclusive profession and, consequently, a more just an inclusive built environment.
