A slate of high-profile experts with extensive knowledge in antiterrorism policy, international human rights, foreign language education, international business and more will be on The University of Montana campus next week as part of the official kickoff of the University’s Global Leadership Initiative.

UM will host several panel discussions and presentations Monday and Tuesday, March 26-27, to celebrate the inaugural class of GLI Fellows. The unique initiative, spearheaded by a faculty committee co-chaired by UM Associate Provost Arlene Walker-Andrews and sociology Professor Daisy Rooks, aims to help the 200 students who begin the program each year to become engaged, articulate global citizens. It’s the first university program of its kind in Montana. I spoke with Ms. Walker-Andrews about the Initiative and the programs offered to incoming freshmen. That interview is attached.
