Located right along the banks of the Mississippi, it makes sense that LSU’s College of the Coast & Environment, or CC&E, would house the largest group of wetlands experts under one roof in Louisiana. In fact, more than one-quarter of CC&E’s faculty have a primary focus on wetlands research, and four of top 10 published wetlands scientists in the U.S. work at CC&E, according to Web of Science. Their work leads to a better understanding of the complex causes of the deterioration of wetlands, potential methods for restoration, and ways to better manage these systems. Here are some of the many ways we are contributing to wetlands research.

The United Nations has declared February 11 the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. On this occasion, we took time to reflect and celebrate the accomplishments of the women students, faculty, and staff of LSU’s College of the Coast & Environment, or CC&E.
More than 50 participants from the Gulf States met virtually on January 28, 2021 as part of the Gulf of Mexico University Research Collaborative’s, or GOMURC’s, diversity, equity, and inclusion workshop. This DEI workshop was facilitated by GOMURC Chair Chris D’Elia, who is a professor and dean of the LSU College of the Coast & Environment. Its purpose was to exchange ideas regarding the development of a strategy to enhance the diversity of doctoral graduates in the physical and environmental sciences.
