NSU President, Dr. Jim Henderson noted, “We’re excited to celebrate the LSBDC rebranding and proud to host the LSBDC on our NSU campuses in Shreveport, Alexandria and our main campus in Natchitoches. Economic Development is an integral component of our University’s success.  A thriving business community fuels our academic endeavors and allows NSU to provide quality education to our students.”
