Stuart Center for Global Leadership



The Stuart Center for Global Leadership, which is named after LFA alumnus and Lifetime Trustee Jim Stuart ’59, is a place for students and faculty to explore options for developing a global outlook. The center offers co-curricular transformative global programs that inspire members of the LFA community to apply classroom concepts to problems in the real world.

The SCGL staff models collaborative leadership by working with global and local partners.
