About Global Leadership
Global Leadership is a student driven program comprised of five sub-committees which spend the year exploring different aspects of a chosen topic which is relevant to today’s society. In the past year alone Global Leadership has managed to organize socials to integrate Maumee Valley’s global community, hosted two nationally-recognized speakers to campus, and organized a GLP blog and discussion forum. In short, the program works extensively to give students a greater understanding of their place in the world, as the foundation of the next generation, and what they can do to change it.
