LEAD (Leadership Education And Development) is LSUS' unique personal development and leadership program assisting students in developing character while building valuable real-world leadership skills through experiential projects and classroom instruction.
To earn a leadership certificate, students must successfully complete nine semester hours of leadership classes.
