Global Citizens are developed by exposing students to issues which inspires them to facilitate change within their local communities.

Over the past three years, the Global Leadership Academy has prepared Arizona State University students to be globally-minded leaders and citizens for the 21st century. Through cross-cultural communication, collaboration, empathy, and self-exploration, students learn to thrive in a diverse environment where values, ideas, opportunities and people continually evolve with today's interconnected global community.

This semester, Global Leadership Academy will offer students two exciting opportunities!
