Message from the Executive Director
Welcome to the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes' website. It is our vision to be the premier provider of student-athlete support services nationally and internationally. We pride ourselves in providing cutting edge technology, support programming, one-on-one advising, a 54,000 square foot facility that is conducive to learning, and a committed team.
We are comprised of an executive team, an academic affairs team, a student affairs team, and an information technology team. Collectively, this dedicated group of fifteen members develops the student-centered support structure for each and every LSU student-athlete.
In an effort to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our student-athletes and remain amongst the premier support centers, we constantly research best practices, implement new programming, and provide personal development sessions that include but not limited to media training, health and wellness, and financial responsibility for our student-athletes.
Our commitment to the total development of our student-athletes primarily includes four areas: academic development, personal development, service, and career development. We believe that our holistic approach has the potential to naturally develop our student-athlete's intellectual growth and curiosity.
Our developmental approach to learning encourages education through inquiry. We also encourage our student-athletes to be future leaders who will go out into society and evoke the necessary changes by executing, exhibiting, and teaching the very values that this office practices on a daily basis. Those values are Accountability, Commitment, Success, Integrity, Diversity, Teamwork, Education, and Service.
Again, we are very proud of what we do and how we do it...the LSU way. Enter to Learn, Leave to Serve!!!
