Leadership Studies is crucial to a 21st Century economy. In a Houston Chronicle article, David Ingram points out, "Leadership acts as the catalyst that makes all other elements work together; without leadership, all other business resources lie dormant". It is a leader who not only creates a vision for the future of any endeavor, but who also motivates those around them to passionately work towards those ends.
Leadership Studies at Louisiana State University Shreveport is a unique opportunity to receive leadership training and professional development beyond the traditional mechanisms. Its mission is to provide structured, yet interdisciplinary leadership education and development opportunities through courses, workshops, and experiential learning opportunities.
