Global Leadership Program



The Global Leadership Program (GLP) aims to transform students into inspired, significant global leaders. By engaging in this program, undergraduates develop leadership competencies to create positive change. Students are required to complete community service hours and participate in immersions including a weekly two-hour meeting that serves as the glue to the global leadership program. Each semester, a tightly knit group of participants is recruited to challenge and support one another; engage in deep reflection; lead several Stetson initiatives; and mentor other GLP students. The 3.5 year program is structured to offer students the opportunity to study abroad during the spring semester of their second year, in a location of their choice. Overall, this co-curricular program provides students with a holistic, innovative and transformative Stetson experience.
