The student government association is the student voice of Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center School of Public Health. It is positioned to develop and further academic achievement; to maintain a high standard of ethics; to ensure consistency and cohesion in the regulation of the student body; to promote understanding among students, faculty, administration and alumni; to coordinate student activities of the School of Public Health (SPH); and to guide all current and future students in Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center (LSUHSC) tradition of excellence in scholarship and public service.
Students for sustainability comprises of a group of students from all disciplines of the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center who have united to develop, implement, and oversee campus-wide initiatives that will make LSUHSC and its surrounding community a more environmentally conscious place to learn.
The Student Organization for the Advancement of Research (SOAR) is a student led organization within the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center School of Public Health whose mission is to enhance student’s research interest capacity through increased awareness, collaboration, and skill building. Our 3 areas of focus are to match faculty need to student desire for research/ manuscript development, to improve student awareness of faculty research interests, and to provide mentoring and grantsmanship opportunities to students.
We believe that New Orleans students need a strong educational foundation in the sciences and should be exposed to professional role models from the scientific community to enhance their academic enthusiasm and opportunity for success.
International Student Association (ISA)
The goal of the ISA is to facilitate an easy transition for international students, from their home countries to the LSUHSC campus. Our collaborative efforts with the Office of International Students(OIS) and the Office of the Vice-Chancellor aim at creating a conducive atmosphere for both international and out-of-state students.
The Interprofessional Student Alliance (IPSA) was formed by a group of interprofessional students in order to help support the many exceptional, LSUHSC-student run community outreach projects across campus. These outreach projects receive technical assistance from IPSA board members and financial support through a grant funded by the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) Medical Honors Society. These projects are all completely student led, have/encourage interprofessional participation, and have had much success bringing IPSA’s mission to life within our NOLA community, both on and off campus.
