Our 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 of 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. Centers of Excellence are named in workforce training, academic programming and research and innovation.

Center of Excellence for Arthritis and Rheumatology
