Global Education Leaders Program

June 15 – 19, 2015

Each June, educational leaders from across the state come to UNC at Chapel Hill for an intensive week-long study of global issues that impact students and communities. The objective is to help educators in leadership positions to plan and implement programs that will increase global understanding by faculty and students. Throughout the program, participants are led by expert faculty from throughout the state as they engage key global topics and strategies for incorporating global themes in their schools, districts, and college. Attendance and participation in the entire 5 day program is key to develop the global competencies necessary to be a global education leader.

New this year! Global Education K-12 Teacher Leaders

Joining K-12 administrators and community college educators, this year’s program will include a select group of K-12 classroom teachers to be a part of a class of Global Education Teacher Leaders. This focused track within World View’s annual Global Education Leaders Program is designed to provide leadership development and coaching within the context of global education. By building the capacity of teachers as leaders, World View will create a cohort of professional educators to serve as a model of teacher leadership in global education. Teachers that are leaders will create students that are both globally competent and engaged citizens.
