At a Glance
The Global Studies, Peace and Leadership Summer Seminar is an all English, intensive international program for university students and young professionals from across the world who are interested in creating social impact and change by exploring global issues, peace (and conflict), and cultivating their leadership skills. It is a five week program composed of 4 separate and intentionally sequenced program blocks.
We believe transformational leadership begins with the individual. Our aim is to empower participants with the knowledge, tools and practical immersion experiences that function as an intentionally guided platform for personal and professional leadership development- one that leads to positive impact for the greater good of society in time. These experiences are nothing short of investments toward creating a more peaceful planet.
Philosophy and Approach
In an increasingly globalized and complex world it is essential for young leaders to be able to think critically about their relationship to society and themselves in order to be effective and empowered agents of change. We believe that social impact and positive change can be accelerated when people become inspired. The Summer Seminar is designed to create experiential and inspirational learning opportunities through online sessions, lectures, workshops, service learning projects and cross cultural immersions to ignite a new generation of social entrepreneurs.
