Leadership Exchange begins January 22, 2015 at 5 p.m. in Campus Life's 2nd Floor Space in the LSU Student Union and continues weekly throughout the spring. The application will be made available later in the fall semester with a November 24, 2014 deadline.
This program is open to 12-15 LSU students (graduate and undergraduate) annually. The leadership exchange is a cohort-style program where LSU students learn about a societal issue, how to make a difference with the issue, and what leadership looks like in social change efforts. The group will meet weekly for an hour and will engage in volunteer service projects on two weekend dates during the semester. Lastly, students will be paired with students at Loyola University New Orleans to complete a public service announcement (PSA) in culmination of the program.
About Leadership Exchange
LSU will partner with Loyola University in New Orleans for a unique opportunity through which students at both institutions will learn concepts of leadership and leader behavior through the lens of the social issue, Human Trafficking, which is a challenge for both the Baton Rouge and New Orleans communities. Students will meet weekly for lively discussion and to plan a shared service opportunity with Loyola University students.
Participants will be blogging about their experiences throughout the program.
This program is free and open to all students, regardless of major or classification. Campus Life welcomes students of the LSU Graduate School, Paul M. Hebert Law Center, and LSU School of Veterinary Medicine to participate.
