The Leaders in a Global World (LGW) offers a unique living and learning environment for Elon University students interested in exploring leadership. Through regular house activities such as dinners, discussion, common readings, movie viewings, and on- and off-campus events, LGW residents will begin to examine leadership by exploring themselves and learning more about the kind of leader they wish to become.
As a two-year residential program in the Global Neighborhood, second-year students serve as mentors to first-year students. We are welcoming all applicants who would like to be a part of a great learning community focused on leadership development, globalization, and cultural differences.
