International and Intercultural Leadership

The International and Intercultural Leadership Certificate is a distinguished academic track within multiple disciplines that highlights and promotes the value and necessity of working across cultures. It provides one mechanism that helps the University achieve its new vision of a meaningful intercultural experience for all.

The certificate aligns with our Catholic and Marianist mission and vision. The certificate is based in values of respect for the dignity of all people, mutual engagement and reciprocity toward servant leadership. This supports the new vision recently presented by President Spina to become THE University for the common good. Placing critical societal issues in the foreground is at the heart of our vision as an institution. Indeed, President Spina has charged all of us to build curricular and co-curricular structures that build servant leadership and intercultural capacity. In addition, the College of Arts and Sciences includes this certificate as a key component of its strategic plan to advance global learning.
