Asia Pacific Leadership Program (APLP)

PROGRAM INFORMATION
Program Description:  The APLP is a 4.5 month residential leadership development program followed by a 4.5 month self-directed practicum (fieldwork, project development or return to employment). The objective of the APLP is to empower future leaders with the knowledge, skills, experiences, and supportive community needed to successfully navigate personal and regional change in the 21st century. The APLP equips participants to become agents of change in Asia and the Pacific through high-quality program content, an emphasis on applied experiential learning, and the development of an alumni network that spans the region. The core of the APLP curriculum focuses on three areas: interpreting emerging issues facing the Asia Pacific; developing personal leadership capacity; and advanced professional development with an emphasis on action.
