Leadership Development Institute


The Leadership Development Institute (LDI) started in the spring of 2008 when a student asked, “This is an American style university, so why don’t we have an American style leadership program?”

The Leadership Development Institute uniquely develops selected students to become global leaders by adapting the best American leadership development research and practices to the needs of Moroccan students and Moroccan society. The LDI is the first such program in Morocco, one of two in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, and one of very few in the developing world. From its roots, the LDI is a co-curricular program teaching leadership skills through experience and service. And we seek to impact society and the quality of leadership much more broadly. Our mission is two-fold: to develop leaders for Morocco’s future and to improve leadership in the developing world.

To ensure that our program has the high standard of the leadership programs in America, the LDI uses the standards set by the Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) in Higher Education to assess its program.
