Getting Started

To get started, you will need to Request a Team. Access to Microsoft Teams is allowed for LSU Flagship Faculty, Staff, and Students. For Faculty/Staff, the requirements are an identified owner of the MS Team who will administer the usage/users within the team, as well as a business objective that the Team will strive to achieve. The students have the same two requirements, and they also must have a sponsoring faculty/staff member.
