About the Global Leadership Diploma

At Appleby College we understand the importance of preparing our students to take on the responsibilities of global citizenship. Our world has changed dramatically over the past quarter century. These changes not only affect the way we think, but more importantly, the way we interact – increasing the level of interdependence between people, cultures and nations.

In preparing our students for success in this increasingly globalized world, we must ensure that they possess the vision, courage and empathy to confront the challenges and opportunities of global citizenship, whether social, economic, moral or cultural. The Appleby College Diploma with Distinction in Global Leadership was created to inspire our current and future students to do just that. The curriculum we have developed will open our students’ minds, inspiring them to explore beyond their current communities by weaving global perspectives into every subject and introducing real-world experiences and interactions into academic, co-curricular and experiential programs.
