The Levermore Global Scholars Program grooms next-generation leaders by offering its scholars a unique opportunity to learn, reflect, and lead through university community service programs, community projects, internships and scholars’ own initiatives.
The LGS Program is enriched through community involvement and projects supervised by LGS faculty. Students can earn academic credit through approved internships with various social and cultural organizations. LGS participants also gain international experience through study and community service abroad and attend a number of United Nations initiatives through Adelphi’s official NGO (non-governmental) status.
Specific goals of the community activism are to help our scholars:
- to learn about the nature of specific local and global social, economic, political and cultural problems and the reasons for their emergence and persistence;
- to contextualize their academic studies with practical, hands-on experience;
- to develop their leadership skills;
- to establish professional networks;
- to further their career goals and development.
