Apply

The Global Leadership Academy application process involves three simple steps.

  1. Write a personal statement.
  2. Line up a letter of reference (optional).
  3. Complete our online application.

Applications will be accepted through 5pm CDT on Friday, September 26. We hope to announce the 2015 Cohort by the end of October.

Step One: Write a personal statement. Consider the three overall objectives of the Global Leadership Academy.

  • Provide a comprehensive and grounded understanding of Webster in all its complexity.
  • Develop and enhance leadership skills of faculty and staff at Webster.
  • Create ambassadors to the communities Webster serves.

In a 1-2 page statement, explain how your participation in the Global Leadership Academy would benefit yourself, your department, and the university as a whole. Be prepared to upload the statement when you fill out the application.

Step Two: If you would like to include a letter of reference from a colleague, talk to that colleague. Be prepared to upload your letter as you fill out the application. This letter is optional. 

Step Three: Complete the online application.

 


In your application we will ask for contact information for your direct supervisor, dean, or campus director. They will be asked to complete the following short questionnaire about your department's needs:

  • Consider your department's challenges and opportunities. Would this individual's participation in the Global Leadership Academy benefit your department?
  • Participation in the Global Leadership Academy requires three full weeks of sessions and seminars. Will your department be able to accommodate this individual's participation in the GLA?
