On Tuesday, May 26,  students and faculty from the MA in Global Leadership program (MAGL) hosted a World Café event.

On Tuesday, May 26,  students and faculty from the MA in Global Leadership program (MAGL) hosted a World Café event that generated dialogue amongst themselves, members of the MAGL Consultative Committee and students and instructors from the Pre Master’s Program and Human Security and Peace Building Cohorts.

Over 60 participants in person and online grappled with complex global questions that engaged the community and bridged intercultural communication. 

The World Café was one of the culminating events for students in the MAGL three-week residency  on campus.   Several other events including a mix and mingle with student support staff from across the university, a day of systems explorations with Rick Kool at botanical beach, and an inspiring day of indigenous leadership with Butch Dick, Shirley Alphonse and Tammie Wylie, contributed to our students’ experiences of community.

A diverse panel of experienced global scholars and practitioners guided our students in their final presentations.  For their leadership projects, all three student teams choose an RRU initiative with sustainable outcomes.  One project focused on creating an endowment scholarship fund for international students. 

We would like to thank all of the RRU faculty and staff who worked with our students on their projects and have committed to working with them further to bring them to a reality.
