LSI’s portfolio of past and current international development programs focuses on supporting systems for sustainable and continuing professional development for educators and policymakers.

LSI International

LSI has been providing technical assistance to developing countries, many funded directly or indirectly by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. State Department, UNICEF, and other international donors. Most of these international projects aim to improve primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as to support educational reforms that call for pre and in-service teacher education, curriculum and materials development for all these levels, including technical and vocational training for workforce development.

LSI’s portfolio of past and current international development programs focuses on supporting systems for sustainable and continuing professional development for educators and policymakers. Our teams focus on delivering quality education services that improve learning outcomes in disadvantaged areas and under-served populations; actively working with ministries of education at national, regional, and community levels; and supporting local and international partners in implementing educational plans.

IMPACT Driven

“At USAID we have a passion for education and high hopes for its future in Nigeria. In that spirit, this partnership (with LSI and FSU) played a critical role in ensuring the next generation of Nigerian children is equipped with the reading skills that will serve as the basis for a lifetime of learning.” -- USAID Nigeria Mission Director Stephen M. Haykin

“We were so impressed with the level of facilities here at Florida State, the level of professionalism and the multi-layers of support FSU is providing to students through their career services outreach and resources. We are impressed with Florida State’s ability to accommodate these international visits.” -- Bill Potter, Project Director of the Higher Education Capacity Development Program

LSI partners with United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. State Department, UNICEF, and other international donors.
