BATON ROUGE - LSU believes that the foundation of the student experience should be rooted in a curriculum that embodies the values of the university--not just through traditional classes, but also through the synthesis of traditional teaching, co-curricular experiences, and experiential learning opportunities. The College of Human Sciences & Education and the School of Leadership & Human Resource Development continues to enhance efforts to recruit high-quality students and support them during their time at the university. One of those students is 2019 MS, Leadership & Human Resource Development Graduate Damon Ploger.

The School of Leadership and Human Resource Development would like to celebrate LSU Alumni, Beverly Brooks-Thompson, as part of our Changemaker series!

She graduated from LSU with her Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Ph.D. all in Leadership and Human Resource Development. Geaux Beverly! She chose to remain at LSU for her graduate degree because of the long term educational investment and opportunities for professional development offered by the institution. The LHRD program felt like an easy choice for Beverly because it offered the flexibility that other programs did not, without sacrificing the rigor or prestige she desired.
