History - School of Graduate Studies


In 1965, the same year that the School of Medicine in Shreveport was authorized by an act of the Louisiana Legislature, a School of Graduate Studies was established as part of the LSU Medical Center. The first class of graduate students on the  Shreveport campus was accepted in 1974. In 1978, the first Ph.D. degree was awarded from the Shreveport campus of the School of Graduate Studies. The LSU Medical Center was renamed the LSU Health Sciences Center in 1999, and the first  Chancellor for the Shreveport campus was appointed on November 3, 2000. In 2004, the School of Graduate Studies on the Shreveport campus was administratively separated from the School of Graduate Studies in New Orleans and placed under the leadership of the Shreveport Chancellor. The first Dean of the School of Graduate Studies in Shreveport was named on April 1, 2004.
