About the Program

The Rockefeller Center’s Global Leadership Program (RGLP) engages Dartmouth students who want to further develop intercultural leadership competencies, which have become increasingly crucial in corporate, public, and non-profit sectors today.

Once a week throughout the term, a carefully selected group of students will have the opportunity to have in-depth discussions about cultural identity and leadership, in addition to gaining first-hand experience in cross-cultural communication. Students will develop a comprehensive understanding of leadership in a global context through a multitude of small-group and individual activities, including scenario act-outs, group presentations, and a weekend learning experience in Montreal, Boston, or NYC.

By participating in RGLP, you will develop important cross-cultural leadership skills that will benefit your experiences with foreign study programs, internships abroad, international volunteering, and research positions, but more importantly with your career post-graduation. 

Application Process

RGLP is offered fall, winter, and spring for a carefully selected cohort of 20-25 sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Application Deadlines

The deadline for Spring 2019 has passed. Please check back for information about the Fall 2019 application process.
