LSU Shreveport to Offer Nonprofit Capacity Building Workshops in Fall 2022 

by BIZ Magazine

Shreveport, LA – LSUS Continuing Education is partnering with the LSUS Institute for Nonprofit Administration and Research (INAR) to offer capacity building workshops for nonprofit professionals. These in-person workshops cover the basic and practical elements that are vital to success and fill an important void for area nonprofit staff leaders, specialists, and generalists.      

High-quality nonprofit education and training create strategic leaders who impact local communities and the world by serving the public good. With over 18,000 nonprofit organizations in the state employing 7% of the state’s workforce, it is important to assist in the professional development of those working in this industry.  

“We have a great number of nonprofit organizations in this region so it’s our honor to provide educational opportunities for those currently working in this industry and to train the next generation of employees,” said Dr. Julie Lessiter, Ed.D., Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives for LSU Shreveport.   

As roles constantly change, professional development is a tool that allows nonprofit professionals to thrive and close the skills gap. The three-hour workshops are focused on updating skills in areas that are important to operating healthy nonprofit organizations and achieving mission goals.  

“Nonprofits in our region have requested in-person professional development workshops on topics such as grant writing, diversity and inclusion, mission branding, and board development,” said Dr. Heather Carpenter, Norman A. Dolch Super Professor and Director of the MS in Nonprofit Administration at LSUS. “The nonprofit professional development workshops have been tailored to fit local needs and are led by experts in the field who will help guide participants to apply lessons to their own organizations.”  

Limited scholarships are available upon request. Email [email protected] for more information.
