LSU National Coalition Building Institute

LSU has recently been named an affiliate campus of the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), a proven leadership development program to reduce or eliminate bias, discrimination, controversy, and interpersonal conflict on campus.

NCBI has been training leaders since 1984, and has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a “promising practice.” This interactive program has the potential to impact your life and the lives of those around you.

LSU has an NCBI expert-trained team of 35 professional staff members 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.

Leadership Development for Inclusion is available for any students, faculty, or staff members at LSU, the Paul M. Hebert Law Center, or the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. The program is free to all participants, but advance registration is required.
