About LCS

Welcome to Krannert's Leadership Communication Studio (LCS)

People and a Place  

In collaboration with stakeholders, our mission is to equip students with the tools for successful academic and professional development, through unique signature learning opportunities, outside of the classroom.


The LCS goal is to help students become more confident when communicating to groups of 1 or 1000. This confidence will help students create opportunities for themselves and guide the group collectively towards holistic success.

The LCS is a space for Krannert Undergraduates and is only open Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. when Purdue classes are in session. While using the LCS, student/faculty identification cards are scanned on the card reader to access the room. The LCS is one of the Purdue Video Express sites on the Purdue campus that allows students, faculty and staff to record high-quality videos. A location map of the available sites is visual after a Purdue user logs onto the Video Express page.
