Mission Statement - School of Graduate Studies

Mission Statement

The mission of the School of Graduate Studies at the LSU Health Sciences Center at Shreveport (LSUHSC-S) is to educate and train students in programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in the biomedical sciences. Graduates of these programs are qualified for positions in academic, industrial, government and health care environments.

Graduate education in academic health centers is rapidly changing, due in part to rapid advances in the basic sciences and biotechnology. The School of Graduate Studies is constantly developing and refining its programs so that graduates are trained to contribute to and compete in a changing world environment.

Goals of the School of Graduate Studies in support of its mission are:

  • To provide a strong program of instruction and research experience by providing high quality faculty, modern equipment and research facilities and a comprehensive approach to education.
  • To train biomedical scientists who can contribute to advances in health care and biotechnology.
  • To develop educators who will contribute to the graduate education of basic scientists, physicians and other health care professionals.
