What is CIAC?

The purpose of the Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC) is to enhance the construction industry through our support of the Bert S. Turner Department of Construction Management at LSU.

Who Are CIAC Members?

Recent LSU CM graduates, leaders in the construction industry, and organizations who work in and support the construction industry both locally and across the world. 

Who Can Join LSU CIAC?

Anyone who is passionate about giving back and enhancing the construction industry. It is also always recommended that recent LSU CM alumni get involved to share their input on how the program can be improved.
