For many students in WLSA member-schools, preparation for leadership roles should be seen as a natural developmental goal. This program aims to help student participants develop leadership competency across several important categories of knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and behaviours. Among competency areas, the ability to work in complicated cross-cultural settings is a vital one in the 21st century. Leading in such contexts is especially challenging. The program will therefore dedicate considerable time to the intersection of leadership and cross-cultural competence.
In this blended learning program, participants will work to develop competencies in the settings in which they currently occupy leadership roles. At the same time, there will be substantial focus on significant real-world contexts, including the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This will ensure that the complex work of the program is both relevant to participants' present lives and forward looking.
This is also an opportunity to work in small groups with students all around the world including a two week capstone course at the 2018 WLSA Student Conference, fully funded by WLSA.
Due to the length and dedication of this course, Student Participants are offered travel reimbursement for the two-week capstone project in Summer 2018. Lodging and food stipend is also provided.
