The Global Undergraduate Leaders Program (GULP) is an innovative cohort-based leadership program for student leaders at the University of Minnesota. It is a year-long co-curricular (not for credit) program that connects undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota (U of M) and undergraduate students at Australian National University (ANU). Students at both universities collaborate virtually to embark on a leadership journey providing opportunities to enhance cross-cultural communication, intercultural competency, and global awareness. GULP includes a two-week immersion trip abroad during winter break, where U of M students will meet the students from ANU in person and collaborate jointly in a third culture. The location of the service trip for the incoming cohort will be to Chiang Mai, Thailand and surrounding areas.
The cost of the program is approximately $4,000, including the plane tickets and program fee. Students selected to participate in GULP are encouraged to fundraise to help cover program costs. Scholarships may also be available.
