What We Do

The Office of Media and Public Relations is responsible for the LSU Shreveport campus communications functions, including media relations, web, social media and marketing.

We work with multiple stakeholders across the campus community to tell the LSUS story, and ensure that every facet of the university’s communication is clear, accurate, consistent, and represents the values of the LSUS brand and mission.

The Media and Public Relations staff can assist you with finding information for a story, locating a faculty member who can provide an expert opinion, arranging interviews with university administrators and finding possible story ideas and photo opportunities. The staff also sends out media advisories, press releases and news and feature articles to the media. During a campus emergency or crisis, the Media and Public Relations team will also be able to provide the media with updated information, official statements and the name and contact information of any university spokespersons. Public records requests to LSU should be addressed to the LSU President, click here for more information.
