LDI and the University of Florida School of Theatre and Dance have announced
an exclusive new program that allows undergraduate students from around the
world to take professional training courses at LDI in Las Vegas and get college
credit from a major accredited American university. Students will register

university worldwide, and provide a valid student ID.

“This unique partnership provides an opportunity for undergraduates to get training in an environment where the equipment and professionals are available in a way not possible on most college campuses,” notes professor Stan Kaye, UF’s design and production area head. “This offers students the chance to enjoy professional training as bona fide university courses, at a discount, taught by industry experts, and with credit that will be accepted by their home university. The courses have been vetted, there will be follow-up assessment, and this is a very exciting new collaboration for us and for LDI.”
Dean Lucinda Lavelli adds: “The University of Florida and LDI share a common goal of leadership. Through this partnership we renew our commitment to education and the lighting industry.”
