Global Leadership Initiative

The Global Leadership Initiative is one of the Institute’s signature programs. It gives students the opportunity to experience new cultures, practice leadership in diverse settings, and become comfortable being uncomfortable.

Past initiatives include trips to Italy, Jamaica, and Haiti. Since 2013, more than 150 students have had the opportunity to experience leadership in a different country.
Trips are open to any student on campus, regardless of major, and are led by two UA faculty members and two student leaders. Each trip varies in purpose and cost, with the Haiti and Jamaica trips focusing largely on leadership through service, and the Italy trip focusing on international business leadership.
