History of Tiger Twelve
In 1995, students, staff and faculty came together to craft a statement of position regarding our basic principles as an academic community. The LSU Commitment to Community states our expectations for each LSU community member.
To promote these principles, each spring, the Office of the Dean of Students recognizes twelve outstanding seniors who “contribute positively to the life of the campus and surrounding community”. These 12 individuals are then recognized as the Tiger Twelve. In keeping with LSU's Commitment to Community, these students also hold themselves to the “highest standards of academic, personal, and social integrity; practice justice, equality, and compassion in human relations;” and also “respect the dignity of all persons and accept individual differences.”
To be eligible for the Tiger Twelve Class of 2014, a student must:
- Demonstrate, through their scholarship, actions and contributions, the principles presented in the LSU Commitment to Community.
- Have a cumulative gpa of at least 2.5
- Graduate in May, August or December of 2014
- Have current full-time status at LSU (unless graduating in May 2014)
