Student Leadership International Dialogue and Exchange (SLIDE)
The Student Leadership International Dialogue and Exchange (SLIDE) program is designed to expose University at Buffalo student leaders to leadership and culture abroad in a number of facets. This program will:
- Examine historical and cultural types of leadership
- Expose students to cultures that are different from their own
- Require students to reflect on their experiences from a holistic world-view perspective
- Examine the reciprocal nature of leadership and service and the role of non-profit organizations in leadership for change
SLIDE is a two-credit experience. One credit is earned in UBE 496 which teaches students about the history, leadership and culture that exists for each country. The second credit is earned through the international travel.
In the past, SLIDE has traveled to Singapore, China, London, Prague, Budapest, Italy, and Greece & Turkey.
The 2016 program will travel to Portugal and Spain in May 2016
