SCI Lead

SCI Lead is a student council within the College of Science, which assists students in developing professional, leadership, and communication skills while advancing diversity and inclusion. Our members participate in a variety of professional and community opportunities, that are designed to help students network with others in their field and prepare them for a career in science.

Our goal is to support professional skill development through creative thinking, leadership training opportunities and community outreach, while also helping students establish their professional identities.

Members of SCI Lead receive the following opportunities during their time within the council:

  • Participate in a Leadership Learning Laboratory

  • Collaborate with fellow members to implement programs and events for the LSU and Baton Rouge Community

  • Contribute to the development and implementation of leadership training opportunities and outreach activities for their peers
