Office of the President

Welcome to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

This is truly a time of opportunity and excitement for our University. Building on a strong foundation, we are moving forward with confidence.

As a research institution, we are committed to acquiring knowledge and making discoveries that can help solve problems or improve lives.

As a university rooted in the distinctive Cajun and Creole cultures, we celebrate diversity.

As a hub of ideas, the University plays a key role in economic development — at local, state and national levels. Through partnerships with public bodies, business, and industry, we are dedicated to keeping our region and Louisiana economically secure.

Above all, we are committed to student success. That commitment refers to more than graduation rates. It includes the transmission of ideals, such as ethics and civic responsibility. It incorporates our intention to prepare our students to thrive as global citizens. And, it reflects our intent to make each student’s college experience as fulfilling as possible.
