Coast, Energy, and Environment Pillar

Louisiana is a working coast, home to nearly five million residents who, along with a large percentage of the Earth’s population, share the common challenges, benefits, and vulnerabilities of living near the water and within close proximity of a delta. The tenacity with which we’ve faced these realities has garnered international recognition. We are committed to protecting and sustaining our shared natural resources, not only for the benefit of Louisiana but for the good of the planet.

Fierce works as one to bring our all.

For generations, LSU has focused on finding more effective ways to protect the environment and more efficient methods for utilizing natural resources. Given Louisiana’s emphasis on energy, firsthand understanding of the risks of severe weather, and fragile coast, we must strategically invest in our intellectual capital to expedite our success. Coupled with increased support for observation, modeling, and forecasting, these investments will solidify LSU’s place as a global leader in transformative research, education, and engagement in the coast and environment.
