Role, Scope, and Mission Statement: The Louisiana State University System is a diverse, comprehensive system ranging from two-year campuses to professional schools and includes the state's comprehensive research institution. Such diversity places a special responsibility on the Board of Supervisors to create a system of education that serves the people of Louisiana as an instrument for discovery and as a delivery system for the transmission of knowledge. The system consists of the following campuses: LSU-Alexandria, LSU-Eunice, LSU-Shreveport, the University of New Orleans, LSU Law Center, LSU Agricultural and Mechanical College, LSU Agricultural Center, the Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and the LSU Medical Center.
