APRU Virtual Student Exchange Leadership Program

APRU Virtual Student Exchange Leadership Program

Published: 14 January 2021

Delivery mode: online

Program type: short course (virtual learning series)

Program dates and times: Jan 29, 2021 to Mar 5, 2021

Friday 5pm-6:30pm Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8)


In this free five-session learning series created by UC Davis in partnership with APRU, a cohort of undergraduate students will explore the concepts of culture, cultural values, identity, and power as well as engage in a deeper reflection on how they and others ‘make meaning’, evaluate intercultural situations, and deal with conflict.


Throughout the synchronous virtual sessions, students will gain global skills and understanding that will help prepare them to be leaders in a global world. Sessions will be facilitated by UC Davis Global Affairs staff and they will be interactive, with discussions, activities, and reflections.

Because participation will be limited to a small number of students (25-30) from across the APRU network, students will be able to make connections across the Asia-Pacific region and engage meaningfully with their peers.

A range of majors and backgrounds are encouraged as these global skills are important regardless of your future career path.


Open to all students from APRU member universities. Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis, although a balance of participants from different APRU institutions will also be considered. Additionally, if you are selected, you must commit to attending all five synchronous online sessions in the series.
