The Corps Global Leadership Initiatives Program is a partnership between the Corps of Cadets, the Department of International Studies, the Study Abroad Programs Office, and the Confucius Institute. Each year, cadets apply for one of the three international trips. Each year, different countries are selected, and once students are chosen, they attend orientation meetings to prepare for their experience prior to the actual trip in May. In 2017 three different trips were planned: China, Panama & Costa Rica, and South Africa. While in each country, students meet with various military personnel and diplomats to learn about the country and the relationship that country has with the United States. The trips utilize the DIME-R framework and focus on topics of diplomacy, information (media), military, economics, and religious/culture. Cadets also have time built into the schedule to explore the country to experience the culture, eat the food, and go to various museums or historical sites. The attached summarizes the assessments given to provide the Corps of Cadets a better understanding of the cadets' experiences during the program.
