What do you like most about working at LSU?

Marco Barker

There are many opportunities to try new things and be creative. LSU has great talent and unchartered territory to still explore.


Tell us something interesting about yourself.


Osceola, AR

College: BS, Industrial Engineering from the University of Arkansas; MBA, Webster University; PhD, Educational Leadership & Research – Higher Education from LSU.

I have a fascination with leisure classes. I have only taken one, which was Cajun dancing, but I still have a long list of other classes I want to take: photography, tennis, wine tasting, Chicago stepping, and the list continues. I appreciate a formal way of learning hobbies and being able to learn in a group is a plus….so, you’re not the only one lost.
