The Global Laureates Academy (GLA) is a network of faculty, staff and students who aim to make an impact on the Wake Forest University community by exploring topics and challenges associated with the five global learning threads.
- Intercultural Inquiry: Interpret global events, values, and practices from multiple cultural perspectives.
- Self Awareness: Explain how their own perspectives and experiences influence their understanding of other cultures.
- Citizenship/Community Interaction: Collaborate across diverse cultures and settings to address complex global challenges.
- Intercultural Communication: Negotiate intercultural interactions using appropriate verbal and nonverbal communication skills.
- Global Responsibility: Formulate solutions to global challenges through informed decision-making and reflection.
Faculty, staff and students may apply during the fall semester each year. Completion of the GLA will take three semesters, and includes both collaborative learning and independent reflection. Each spring a new cohort will engage in a series of workshops that address relevant topics aligned with the five global learning threads. Self-selected small groups will then propose and implement a final project that will positively impact the Wake Forest global campus community. This three-semester program concludes with an opportunity for participants to share their projects with each other and the leadership team of the Center for Global Programs & Studies.
Participants successfully completing all requirements will become a WFU Global Laureate, earning recognition on our website and a memento for their participation.
