The Global Leadership in Namibia program explores leadership from a personal, local and global perspective. The program examines the concepts of power and privilege in a leadership role, ethical engagement and leadership in an international context. This program is a collaboration between Community Engagement (former Centre for Community-Engaged Learning), Leadership and Student Engagement, and Namibian organizations.
Students have the opportunity to explore who they are as leaders, where their strengths lie and how they can positively impact the communities in which they live, locally and globally.
The first Global Leadership in Namibia took place in July 2014, as a team of staff and students travelled to Windhoek, Namibia for 20 days to learn and volunteer. While volunteering with a local children’s learning centre, Bernard Nordkamp Centre (BNC), participants also had the opportunity to experience weekend trips exploring the beautiful country and surrounding area, including Etosha National Park.
