About Us


WebMeetDean60.jpgConsistent with LSU's Flagship Agenda, the E. J. Ourso College of Business fully embraces the mission of enhancing diversity and inclusiveness, and thus has this mission as one of its five strategic priorities. We are emphasizing the recruitment and retention of minority and women students and faculty, providing a workplace free of intolerance or discrimination. This priority is not only the right thing to do; it improves the quality of the working, learning, and living environment.

Diversity as a concept focuses on a broader set of qualities than race and gender; it is multicultural. In the context of the workplace, valuing diversity means creating a workplace that respects and includes differences, recognizing the unique contributions that individuals with many types of differences can make, and creating a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees.


WebMeetDean44.jpgA diverse workforce that feels comfortable communicating varying points of view provides a larger pool of ideas and experiences. Employees from diverse backgrounds bring
individual talents and experiences in suggesting ideas that
often lead to better solutions. Many organizations refer to this as diversity of thought.

For our students, it is critically important that our college provides a diverse and inclusive environment to better prepare our students for diversity in the workplace. Learning how to thrive and collaborate with others of different perspectives is good for business.
