The Leadership Development Institute (LDI) is an umbrella organization to promote interdisciplinary research and collaboration on leadership development. The LDI serves as a research, education, and outreach initiative within the College of Human Science & Education’s School of Leadership & Human Resource Development (SLHRD).

Strong leadership is fundamental to enhancing economic, social, and environmental development. Through innovative discovery, curricula, programs, and strategic partnerships with industry, the LDI provides a science-based focus on developing sustainable and effective leaders for Louisiana and the nation.

The LDI links LSU’s expertise in leadership development with the critical need for strong leaders to grow our economy, communities, and organizations.
