More information about LSU:
LSU is located adjacent to the mighty Mississippi river in the capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge. Approximately 1 hour from New Orleans, there is an abundance of music, cultural, and food festivals in the region. In addition, southern Louisiana offers opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities, such as boating, fishing, kayaking, and hiking.
The Veterinary Teaching Hospital at LSU houses specialty services in the disciplines of anesthesia, cardiology, ophthalmology, zoological medicine, oncology, internal medicine, dermatology, surgery, diagnostic imaging, and integrative medicine and physical rehabilitation. While medical and radiation oncology are currently housed in a new facility, a brand new hospital is currently being built for the remainder of the specialties in order to house our state-of-the-art equipment. This new hospital will house many outpatient services as well as a brand new clinical skills lab space.
The School of Veterinary Medicine has also invested in teaching. Our students and faculty now have a brand new modern open floor plan library with many conference rooms that is one of the jewels in our crown. Additional recent constructions include the years 1, 2, and 3 classrooms, as well as a large modern multipurpose lab used by instructors for a variety of teaching purposes including clinical skills.
We strive to create and maintain a diverse and inclusive environment for faculty, students, and staff to thrive in. Our mission and strategic plan include pillars in diversity, equity and inclusion.

All of our students receive DEI education within the curriculum. We currently have the most diverse staff, second most diverse faculty, and a student body that has grown from 7% to 30% underrepresented minorities within the last five years. Our SVM leaders in the Diversity Office are members of the diversity committees of two national organizations, the AAVMC and the SEVEC (southeast veterinary education consortium) and the SVM diversity committee is driven by the faculty, students and staff of the school.
