Kudos to our ASC Graduates!

Dear Krystal, Brittany, Buo, Alexa,
Sam, Kerry, Liz, Ben, and Joel, 

Our place is better space because of your service!

“You will be the broken world and the act of changing it, in a way that you haven’t been before. You will be so many things, and the one thing that I wish I’d known and want to say is, don’t just be yourself. Be all of yourselves. Don’t just live. Be that other thing connected to death. Be life. Live all of your life. Understand it, see it, appreciate it. And have fun.” –  Joss Whedon

Join UAlbany’s Center for Leadership and Service, Stony Brook University, Binghamton University, Fashion Institute of Technology, and SUNY’s SAIL Institute for Academic & Innovative Leadership for the Common Purpose Global Leadership Experience in New York City, July 10-13, 2017.

Develop your leadership skills to help influence the future of the world. Along with your fellow participants, you will play a part in tackling the biggest issues facing business, governments, and society today. A Global Leader Experience (GLE) gives you real and practical experiences, instills in you a global perspective, and challenges you to adapt and thrive in diverse situations. It equips you with the tools you need to lead change, now and in the future.

What happens?

The Challenge for 2017/2018 is “How do smart cities ensure they are inclusive?” As a participant, you will explore this major world Challenge from a local perspective. You will meet visionary leaders from global businesses, governments and international not-for-profit organizations to help you and your fellow participants understand the Challenge in order to create innovative solutions. Best of all, you won’t be alone; you will build your connections and make new friends – and the solutions and knowledge you all build will be passed to participants on other GLEs around the world. Common Purpose runs GLEs in cities around the world, where large numbers of the world’s talent convene to study, so you will meet fellow students from across the globe amongst this diverse group of participants.
