LSU President William F. Tate IV announced today in Pineville, La., LSU's $6.1 billion economic impact on Louisiana. Tate is travelling throughout the state this week as part of the Scholarship First bus tour.


“LSU’s campuses contribute a tremendous amount to the state, and the Scholarship First Agenda is a targeted path toward increasing our impact,” LSU President William F. Tate IV said.

“More difficult to measure but of vital importance are the tremendous cultural assets our faculty and students deliver through the arts, literature, music, and humanities. Those activities enrich lives and deepen community engagement – just another example of how LSU enhances Louisiana’s future.”
