The Program for Education in Global Stewardship
part of Washington and Lee’s continued efforts in international
education, the notion of Global Stewardship is intended to encourage students and faculty to
develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of the world within a
global context. The core of the program--global stewardship--is
defined as a "commitment to the responsible management of world
resources (natural, human, and economic) through informed leadership."
Currently, the Program offers two student oriented opportunities:
The Spring Institute 2006: Culture and Society in West Africa which will provide an intensive introduction to the culture, history, and contemporary issues of this region, based in Senegal for five weeks of the W&L spring term, and with generous funding to help cover student expenses on the program,
Student Internships Abroad, through which students may apply for assistance in finding and funding an eight week long summer internship overseas.
The Program for Education in Global Stewardship is made possible through the generous support of the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation.
