UNC World View Global Education Leaders Cohort


“The world is transforming at an ever-increasing pace and leaders need to develop their global competencies in order to remain relevant. By participating in UNC World View’s Global Education Leaders Cohort, I gained a deeper understanding of our global society and integrate that understanding into my leadership style. As leaders in today’s interconnected global environment, we must continue to develop our cultural competence to be effective.”
– Lawrence L. Rouse, Ed.D., President, Pitt Community College

The UNC World View Global Education Leaders Cohort is a highly selective body of educational K-12 and community college leaders committed to their own professional development of the importance of a global education in creating a collaborative, economically competitive,  just, and safer world. The leaders cohort will virtually convene for 90 minutes per month October 2021-April 2022 for an intensive examination of global issues that impact faculty, staff and most importantly students and their communities.
