BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – LSU is getting financial assistance from RoyOMartin, Roy O. Martin III and Kathy Martin.

Those individuals have agreed to give $3.5 million to help with capital priorities at three locations.

Those locations are the LSU of Alexandria’s Student Success Center, LSU Interdisciplinary Science Building in Baton Rouge and the LSU Health Shreveport’s Center for Medical Education.

LSU is providing a description of the building on LSU’s main campus in Baton Rouge.

The Interdisciplinary Science Building – LSU’s top capital priority – will be the central home to a new campus district focused on scientific discovery. The $101 million project, a public-private partnership with the State of Louisiana, will create an epicenter for academics, research and industry collaboration and a hub for collaborating on nearly $35 million in annual research awards.

“This gift will provide foundational support for three of our top capital priorities,” said LSU President William F. Tate IV. “The LSU of Alexandria Student Success Center, LSU Interdisciplinary Science Building and LSU Health Shreveport Center for Medical Education are critical to closing infrastructure gaps, positioning LSU to achieve ambitious goals in the areas of student and faculty recruitment, research and community impact. The Martins’ support of LSU is longstanding and broad, and we are grateful for their exemplary commitment to advancing LSU as a family of interconnected campuses.”
