Global Leaders Leadership Workshop 2020


About Global Leaders

The Global Leaders program is a series of seminars and activities designed for international students to facilitate participants' understanding and development of individual leadership styles, and to support participants to transform knowledge into impact. Furthermore, the program serves as a platform to form friendships and cultural understanding. It is jointly offered by the School of Global Studies and Partnerships and the Leadership Institute. The program will help attendees to recognize their capacity to lead in all areas of their lives. This year's program will be delivered in a hybrid model with some segments and activities in a virtual setting and others in an in-person format. This program is open to all international students at OSU.


This program includes:

  • two sessions of leadership seminars that will help you identify and analyze your leadership style
  • opportunities to strengthen your public-speaking skills, expand your ability to work in diverse groups and explore the leadership challenges associated with complex social issues
  • community engagement activity that will help you understand how to collaborate with others and make a difference in the community
  • interactive opportunity with the students from the President Leadership Council (PLC) to understand and appreciate cultural difference
