Congrats to our Fall 2021 Global Leadership Graduates

By Megan Swanson, Extended Learning Program Manager, December 10, 2021

In December 2021, we celebrated the "graduation' of our Fall 2021 Global Leadership Program (GLP) in person!

In all, 27 local and international students from 10 different countries participated in the GLP this quarter. Students received instruction in key leadership skills development, including Intercultural Communication, Inclusive Leadership, and Leading with Integrity. Guest lecturers included Dr. Suzanne Johnson and Wendy Stewart. The program culminated in group project capstone presentations, which allowed students to apply the leadership skills they learned earlier in the quarter. Their projects focused on how to improve online learning, faculty-student relationships, local/international student relationships, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) at GRC. The students had some really interesting ideas and we hope to find ways to share and implement them with faculty and across campus.

The sessions took place virtually, with the exception of the final presentations and graduation celebration, shown above. Some students zoomed in from abroad for the presentation, making it a multi-modal event.

The GRC Global Leadership Program is offered twice a year, in fall and spring terms. It is free of charge and students receive a Certificate of Completion at the end. Applications for Spring 2022 will open in January. Visit the Global Leadership website for more information.
