The GLI program has a few basic requirements for eligibility and students who meet those requirements will have an equal opportunity to be selected for the program. Learn what those requirements are and what you’ll need to do to let us know that you’re interested in the program.
During their first year of study, the Fellows will enroll in seminars focused on new and enduring Global Questions taught by UM faculty recognized for their scholarly work and teaching excellence. Freshman seminars are designed to be interdisciplinary courses that fulfill general education requirements while addressing pertinent topics in a small group setting.
GLI Living Learning Community
The GLI Living Learning Community is a housing option within the Residence Life system for first-year GLI Fellows. This living option enriches the experience of the Global Leadership Initiative by giving students the opportunity to think globally, but connect locally. Members of the community will engage in voluntary activities that are tailored to meet the needs and interests of the GLI experience.
