The Water Campus is currently home to Louisiana’s Coastal Protection & Restoration Authority, the agency in charge of implementing the $500 billion coastal master plan. Also located on the campus is the LSU Center for River Studies - a to-scale physical model of the lower Mississippi River. The Center for Coastal & Deltaic Solutions sits on the city’s old municipal dock and is home to The Water Institute of the Gulf, The Estuary, a 6,000-square-foot conference and event venue as well as WaterWorking, a shared co-working space.
The Louisiana Cyber Coordination Center will be located in the newest building on campus along with engineering, disaster recovery and government agencies. Cybersecurity professionals from the Louisiana National Guard will conduct cyber missions alongside peers from LSU’s applied research affiliate, Stephenson Technologies Corp., and Radiance Technologies, a private defense contractor. The center will promote a safer cyber community in Louisiana through information sharing, training and partnering among federal and state agencies, academia and industry experts.
