Leadership is a relational process of working with others to accomplish a goal and to promote change within a community.
Our programs, workshops, and retreats teach students about their strengths, develop core competencies for effective leadership, and help them appreciate the differences of others. ALL students have the capacity to lead.
Campus Life provides comprehensive leadership development in a format that compliments academic disciplines and contributes to a student’s development.
Six competencies guide Campus Life leadership programs:
Students should all have an understanding of who they are as leaders, including their unique talents and strengths. This identity can frame how students approach the world and work with others.
Students should develop a confidence in their ability to lead others and impact change through acquisition of key skills and effective leadership principles.
Connection to LSU
To love purple and live gold have come to signify who students are as Tigers in the community and throughout the world. The pride students feel on the athletic field and in the classroom should motivate them to stay connected to LSU for a lifetime.
Creating an inclusive/supportive environment is essential to the LSU Commitment to Community.
Working in Groups
LSU students should be prepared to work in dynamic groups within their chosen career field. LSU expects that effective leaders understand the value of group dynamics.
Appreciation of Difference
Human difference is more than diversity or multiculturalism, it can be complex layers of life experience that each student brings with them to LSU. Developing understanding and appreciation for differences is important to the LSU student leader.
