Economic Development

 

The fourteen parish region of nearly 800,000 residents encompasses a vibrant way of life for North Louisianans. The region is among the most diverse and balanced economies of its size in the United States. It boasts a large and sophisticated health care sector, competitive manufacturing base, re-energized oil and gas sector and a sizable and diverse service sector including notable educational institutions, hospitality/gaming and customer support/call centers, among others.

LSU Shreveport contributes to this development by offering public higher education opportunities to our area's youth, including undergraduate and graduate degrees.
