By 2025, our School will be the premier thought leader in Leadership and Human Resource
Development, recognized for world-class research, teaching, and service.
To prepare leaders to foster learning, development, and change in individuals, organizations,
and global communities.
We move forward collectively with the university’s values, acknowledging that the
principles we uphold as a campus community are what make LSU and the School of Leadership
& Human Resource Development exceptional.
We commit ourselves to relentlessly pursuing a direct, positive impact on individuals,
organization, and global and academic communities through four key pillars:
Student-Centered, Applied Learning
We provide an applied, student-centered learning experience that builds in our graduates
the knowledge, skills, and ways of thinking needed to become global citizens, leaders,
and positive change agents.
Diversity and Inclusivity
We encourage diversity and inclusiveness through civility, the free exchange of ideas,
an appreciation of individual distinctiveness, and respect for multiple perspectives.
Strong Science-Practice Focus
We believe a strong theory-research-practice linkage is critical in an applied field
and realize this through effective collaboration, the provision of evidence-based
tools and interventions, and ongoing local and global engagement.
We strive for a global reputation of excellence to be realized through rigorous, cutting-edge
research, adherence to the highest ethical standards in teaching, research and practice,
ongoing professional development of all members of our learning community, and the
creation of an exemplary, dynamic curriculum that meets the needs of our stakeholders.
