On March 28, 2019, LSU announced the largest campaign for higher education in the history of Louisiana. Though our work begins here in Louisiana, our influence extends far beyond our borders. LSU is a nexus of people, partnerships, and ideas that fuel the engine of global progress from our campuses in Baton Rouge, Alexandria, Eunice, New Orleans, and Shreveport, and from our extension offices in all 64 parishes. We are deeply committed to positive transformation of opportunity, resources, and well-being for all.
LSU alumni Ava Leavell Haymon and Cordell Haymon of Baton Rouge have made a $1.2 million gift to the LSU College of Music & Dramatic Arts to fund an endowed chair in music therapy, making LSU a leader in creating such a position. The Haymons’ gift, which will be eligible for $800,000 in competitive matching funds from the Louisiana Board of Regents, will establish the first music therapy program at a public university in Louisiana.
