2017 Intercultural Leadership Summit

On a beautiful football Saturday in September, twenty-four diverse students came together for a full-day training on topics of leadership and intercultural competencies. These students represent 11 nationalities and various multicultural backgrounds.

The Office of Global Engagement, along with the Center for Student Leadership, Ethics and Public Service designed the Intercultural Leadership Summit as a student professional development opportunity during which students expanded their network, gained cultural competence, and developed skills for effective leadership.

Students work to identify potential gaps in cultural values and develop strategies for working successfully across cultural differences.

After completing the Summit, students have successfully completed the first three workshops of ten required for the Leadership Development Program and earned 7 hours of co-curricular credit for the Global Perspectives Certificate.
