SRU’s Leadership Development Center (LDC) provides exceptional programs that engage students, faculty, staff, and community members through experiential learning opportunities. The staff at the LDC is comprised of both professional and student workers who bring a variety of expertise, knowledge, and diversity to our team.  Programming at the LDC includes experience-based academic labs, student engagement, leadership & professional development workshops, and staff retreats, just to name a few! Each of these experiences is unique and customized for the groups we serve. 

Our programming is complemented by our facilities: a 2,200 sq. ft. training center, a military designed leadership reaction course, a wooded leadership trail, and a 35’ climbing tower and challenge course - with a zip line!  As a resource to the entire campus and the greater Slippery Rock community, the LDC is here for your group.  Lodging is also available in the summer.
