Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be spotlighting our many LSU Alumni Affinity Chapters! These special chapters are not geographically based as many of our chapters are, and instead focus on joining together individuals who are alike in some way. Whether that be through their academic program, involvement in an organization as a student, or personal attributes, these incredible chapters are run a little bit differently but are among some of our most successful and active chapters. To learn more, visit LSUAlumni.org/Chapters.  

A.P. Tureaud Sr. Black Alumni Chapter

The A.P. Tureaud Sr. Black Alumni Chapter of the LSU Alumni Association, reconstituted in 2009, promotes fun and exciting engagement of LSU alumni and friends. Katrina Dunn, Chapter President, shares what the chapter means to her. "Tureaud Chapter is about honoring the past and building bridges to the future. As President, I stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. My goals are to:

  1. Cultivate a robust alumni community that engages alumni purposefully, personally, and professionally;
  2. Increase student awareness of the Chapter, its purpose, activities, and services and prepare students to become engaged alumni;
  3. Promote Alumni giving to various fundraising activities; and 
  4. Develop and enhance connections among alumni, students, the community, and friends.
