Developing an International Agricultural Leadership Program to Meet the Needs of a Global Community
Moore, Lori L.; Boyd, Barry L.; Rosser, Manda H.; Elbert, Chanda
Journal of Leadership Education, v8 n1 p118-129 Sum 2009
This paper advances the notion that global leadership is a necessary component of undergraduate agricultural leadership. Within an existing leadership curriculum, the development of at least three new courses with innovative approaches to such a globalized curriculum is justified and outlined. These three classes include a course designed to increase awareness of global leadership issues, a cultural assimilation course designed to prepare students for an international experience, and a capstone seminar course. The program will require students to take the three classes being developed in addition to at least three other classes with an international or cultural emphasis as well as participate in an international experience during their undergraduate career. Upon completing the global agricultural leadership curriculum, students will be awarded an academic certificate.
