of student-athletes regret not being able to study abroad due to their athletic commitments.
That's about to change.
Pledge to L.E.A.D. by 2020
Join the L.E.A.D. campaign - Leveraging Education Abroad for Development - by pledging 10% of student-athletes and athletic staff at your institution will participate in an abroad program by 2020.
Students who study abroad:
have higher GPAs
have higher graduation rates
have higher starting salaries
are twice as likely to land career-related jobs
The L.E.A.D. campaign is mobilizing athletic departments across the country to leverage education abroad for development of student-athletes and athletic staff. Leaders of tomorrow require global competencies to better understand global teams and student-athletes are getting left behind. Now is the time to L.E.A.D.
How it Works
Make a commitment to 10% of student-athletes and staff going abroad by December 31, 2020.
Nominate a L.E.A.D. Champion and establish a roadmap to success.
Design programs according to your Institution’s vision and values.
Prep participants for the experience of a lifetime.
“Global Players offers an unrivaled abroad experience. The well-rounded program equips student-athletes for tremendous growth. Through Global Players, I was able to simultaneously develop my professional, athletic, and leadership skills. There was no sacrifice involved. Global Players afforded me an entirely rewarding summer abroad.”
