Who We Are

Louisiana State University is a Carnegie Very High Research public Flagship University that is a Land, Sea and Space grant institution. Online learning currently occurs in three distinct spheres at LSU: Nearly 700 post-bac and graduate students are pursuing online degrees and certificates through LSU Online; more than 3500 students enrolled in asynchronous online courses last year through the Division of Continuing Education; and nearly 13,000 enrollments in online courses by traditional brick and mortar students occurred last year. LSU is in the process of integrating these three spheres with more traditional forms of continuing educational programming into a single vision of online and lifelong distance learning opportunities. We seek an experienced and visionary leader to help establish, build and coordinate this new unit.
