Meet Our Facilitator Team

LSU has an NCBI expert-trained team of professional staff members and graduate students who are ready to help students develop cultural competency and inter/intrapersonal skills to have difficult conversations, to diffuse conflict, and to “respect the dignity of all persons and accept individual differences,” as the LSU Commitment to Community states. The leadership training modules can be built into existing programs or held as additional workshops and seminars for LSU departments, colleges, and student organizations.

The NCBI at LSU team is made possible through the hard work and dedication of the LSU Office of Diversity, the Office of the Dean of Students, the Division of Student Affairs, Campus Life, some academic colleges, and several campus departments.
