LSSU Statement on the National Anthem

Representing LSSU in an official capacity at an event where the National Anthem is played is an honor and privilege; an honor and privilege established by the many men and women who have come before us and those that continue to fight for our freedom today. It is through this freedom that we are allowed to confidently and openly engage in difficult conversations surrounding our individual beliefs, values, religious views, and any other issue. Consequently, LSSU encourages any member of the LSSU community representing the University to stand for the National Anthem of our country and other countries.
