IMG 3084Nine Ohio State students studying Chinese participated in the Global Leadership Academy at Wuhan University in Wuhan, China, from May 2 – 26. The trip was coordinated by the Global Gateways and made possible through a $50,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State.

The goal of the program was to give Ohio State students an education abroad experience through a culture and language practicum and to develop leadership skills, while also providing students in Wuhan the opportunity to learn from and participate in language and cultural exchange. The Global Leadership Academy provides opportunities for students to take the language they are learning in the classroom and apply it in real life situations like ordering food, getting transportation, conversing with fellow Chinese students and even watching a movie in the theatre.
