LSUS has begun efforts to address global awareness, an issue of growing importance. The campus is a member of the Council for the Development of French in Louisiana (CODOFIL) with French study programs in Belgium, France and Quebec. The director's office of the Association of Third World Studies, the oldest and largest professional organization of academics interested in developing nations, is now housed at LSUS. Since opening its classrooms to students in 1967, LSUS has become a linchpin in the Shreveport-Bossier educational community. Anchored along the picturesque Red River in southeast Shreveport, the beautifully landscaped LSUS campus serves as home to more than 4,200 students. LSUS has 25 undergraduate degree programs and a dozen master's degree programs. The highly qualified faculty has the highest percentage of doctoral degrees in the state, and our student-teacher ratio is one of the lowest.
