Global Leaders

Hello Global Gettysburgians!

Just because you’re back on campus doesn’t mean the impact of your global study experience has to end; there are many ways to engage with, and reflect upon, your global study experience, and share it with the broader campus community! One of these ways is to join the Global Leaders of Gettysburg College (GLGC)! CGE invites you to sign-up to participate at the bottom of this page!

The GLGC is designed to help returned global study students connect their global study experiences to their lives on- and off-campus. Participating in GLGC offers you a framework to continue developing the academic, professional, and personal skills that were fostered during your global study semester. Additionally, it continues to build our Gettysburg College community by offering opportunities for you to mentor and support future cohorts of global study students!

One of the best parts of GLGC is that it is flexible, and will fit into everyone’s schedule because you choose what to participate in. There are no mandatory events or meetings you need to attend, but there are a lot of ways to be involved! Below you’ll find some examples of the many ways GLGC members are active on campus.

To recognize exceptional participation in the GLGC, eligible students will be awarded an honor cord to wear at Commencement signifying their completion of the GLGC program!

Mentor Future Global Study Students:

Participating in CGE’s Pre-Departure Orientation, or events during Family Weekend or Get Acquainted Day, speaking with students who are considering global study in future semesters, or being an advocate for global study in your clubs, sports teams, and/or Greek organizations.

GLGC members are the first students CGE staff reach out to when we have upcoming events when it would be great to have the perspective of a returning global study student. Remember the returned global study students you met with during Pre-Departure Orientation? Did CGE connect you with returned global study students when you were considering different programs? Many of those students were members of the GLGC!

Connect Global Study to Classes on Gettysburg’s Campus:

Connecting your global study experiences into your coursework, writing papers/capstones that tie in international perspectives and topics, submitting papers to the Cupola, attending lectures and speakers.

Engage in Activism on and off of Gettysburg’s Campus:

Volunteering in Adams County, attending on-campus debates and lectures, planning an event or lead an event, joining a new club, practicing speaking another language.
