Centers of Excellence

A select number of academic programs earn designation as a Center of Excellence by the Louisiana Board of Regents. Centers of Excellence must demonstrate statewide leadership in their area of designation and be a hallmark for the institution. The selected centers share a strong performance record, concentration on an area relevant to the state’s needs, a range of academic, training and research opportunities, engagement with the greater community, and a focus on issues and opportunities that improve the quality of life of Louisiana citizens. 

Three LSU Health Shreveport centers have earned this distinction:

Feist-Weiller Cancer Center, Shreveport, LA

Center of Excellence for Arthritis and Rheumatology

Center for Cardiovascular Diseases and Sciences
