President's Millennial Scholars Program

Program Description: The President’s Millennial Scholars Program (PMSP) is a student-centered approach to ensure the academic, cognitive, personal, career and professional development of students from underrepresented populations and students of color. PMSP is designed to retain students from key populations by providing academic support, professional and leadership development, and mentorship from faculty and staff. The ultimate goal is to create high-quality learning environments, where academic and professional excellence is the expectation. Each year, fifteen (15) incoming freshmen are selected as a cohort.

PMSP is administered by the Office of Diversity, which is committed to fostering inclusive educational opportunities and an equitable workforce environment at LSU. The Office is also responsible for supervising professional units whose purpose and mission is to promote understanding and respect for difference. These units include the: Office of Multicultural Affairs, African American Cultural Center and the Women’s Center.
