LSU has developed a research strategy focused on enhancing, expanding and positively impacting the intellectual enterprise, cultural resources, and economic activities within the State of Louisiana, the Nation, and the World.
Office of Research Facilitation was developed to create a supportive environment for emerging multidisciplinary initiatives, facilitate research collaboration with local, national, and international partners, promote research initiatives within the 7 focal areas identified in the Strategic Plan, and enable partnerships with industry, state agencies, and other stakeholders.
Creative Initiatives was established to support the strategic plan of the LSU Office of Research and Economic Development for the annual year 2013-14.
Its primary goals are to:
- Provide a definition of creativity that will support the strategic goals of the Office of Research and Economic Development
- bring a broader appreciation for the creative contributions of all disciplines to the research plan of LSU
- develop communication mechanisms to promote scholarship both internally and externally
- identify funding sources that will support creative engagement and thinking, both in and beyond the arts area at LSU.
Housed in the Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED), the faculty who are involved in this endeavor–make a coordinated effort to support the strategic goals of LSU and ORED, while bringing about a broader appreciation for the creative contributions of all disciplines, promoting scholarship, and identify funding sources.
