This handbook is designed for students and student groups affiliated with or supported by the Institute for Global Leadership (IGL). The purpose of this handbook is to describe the most efficient and effective means of accessing resources available to students through the IGL. This process is for all students and IGL-affiliated student groups applying for IGL funding for an event or project, including research. We are excited about all the innovative projects and programming done by IGL students and groups and we are eager to support you in these efforts. We have no desire to create a static or nonresponsive “bureaucracy”. Rather, to enable us to serve you best and to allow for intelligent growth, we have created some guidelines that we believe will enhance your objectives and allow us to work cooperatively. There are often many details that need to be worked out in order to successfully plan and execute these activities, so please ensure that you work closely with the IGL staff during this process. For IGL student groups, it is important that all of your group’s programming – whether or not you need financial or logistical support – goes through the approval process. Each IGL or affiliated group represents the Institute. Consequently, the IGL needs to be sure that the events and activities organized by its various student groups reflect the IGL’s norms and sensibilities regarding content, professionalism, and perspective.
