Welcome to the GLC

Vision



The Global Leadership Center strives to develop internationally-minded, locally-engaged leaders in all walks of life.

 
Mission


The Global Leadership Center offers a two-year undergraduate certificate that prepares students to become lifelong learners in order to serve as internationally-minded, skilled, attuned, professional and experienced leaders in all walks of life (commercial, governmental and nongovernmental, educational, etc.). The GLC certificate is not a degree-granting academic discipline but a curricular and co-curricular program which enhances other disciplines.
 
The program prepares students to think critically and creatively, communicate clearly and logically, be flexible and non-dogmatic, embrace ambiguity and complexity, and understand the world's challenging commercial, political, religious, and cultural issues.

In the Global Leadership Center, students work in teams comprised of both Ohio University and foreign-based international students on real-world projects, usually with real-world clients (both in the USA and abroad), in a community-based education experience.
