Leadership LSU is a campus tradition during which students explore the concepts of adaptive leadership through group discussion and extracurricular lectures with LSU and community leaders. The work of adaptive leadership challenges leaders to engage others and build their own capacity to address complex social issues from within communities, rather than simply solve issues for others. The program connects students’ leadership experiences with the challenges of their future career choices, to develop a leadership network and to deepen an understanding of leadership within a larger societal context.

Members of the class followed a rigorous application and selection process and participated in bi-weekly seminars about adaptive leadership throughout the spring semester.
