Global Leadership Program Module Learning Outcomes


The four Global Leadership Program modules will provide you with opportunities to gain insights into your leadership skills and intercultural beliefs through inventory questionnaires, strengths assessments, and guided self-discovery activities. You will be encouraged to analyze your individual results and to develop practical personal development action plans, which you will implement, use to review your progress, and revise when needed. In addition, you will be required to attend three cross-cultural events and participate in one service learning activity.

Overall Program Goal

To awaken your unique leadership potential, to identify strengths and areas for improvement, and to encourage continued personal growth through the creation and implementation of a personal development plan with a global leadership focus.

“To be a leader is to initially learn about one another, collaborate, and work together in spite of our differences to achieve a communal goal. Through this collaboration and other activities provided by the program, I have built new friendships and opened up myself to an even larger sense of diversity through sharing ideas and opinions with my teammates on particular topics.”
