Program Overview

The Global Leadership Center (GLC) strives to develop internationally-minded, locally-engaged leaders in all walks of life.

The Global Leadership Center offers a two-year undergraduate certificate that prepares students to become lifelong learners in order to serve as internationally-minded, skilled, attuned, professional and experienced leaders in all walks of life (commercial, governmental and nongovernmental, education, etc.). The GLC certificate is not a degree-granting academic discipline but a curricular and co-curricular program which enhances other disciplines.

The program prepares students to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly and logically, be flexible and non-dogmatic, embrace world projects, usually with real-world clients (both in the USA and abroad), in a community-based education experience.
