What is GLP (Global Leadership Program)?
Global Leadership Program (GLP) is an annual AJCU (Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities) program where students from five Jesuit universities have an opportunity to discuss current issues happening in their home countries. The five universities are Fu Jen Catholic University (Taiwan), Sogang University (South Korea), Sophia University (Japan), Ateneo de Manila University (Philippines) and Sanata Dharma University (Indonesia).
GLP has three main activities; there are: University presentations, Fieldworks, and Cultural Performance. University presentations are the time when each university introduces their university and explains their country report (related to the main issue). Fieldworks are activities such as visiting some places that are related with the main issue, reflection, group discussion, etc. Last, Cultural Night is an opportunity for each university to introduce their culture to other participants. Each country usually performs something that will showcase the uniqueness of their home country.
