Leadership

The GEBG supports member schools through a myriad of benefits including in-depth professional development, benchmarking data and model practices, discounted travel risk assessment and emergency assistance and insurance, curricular development, conferences, institutional evaluations and endorsement, resource library, collaborative student and faculty travel, and a supportive network of member schools. These initiatives help schools establish structures and programs that enable students to develop the knowledge, skills, and empathic orientation required of global citizens.

We are governed by a Board of Directors and led by a team of staff and an Executive Director. We rely on volunteer educators to help support our organization as well as active engagement from our member schools. Please learn more about our leadership or get involved. Our organization is funded through modest membership dues, participation in and sponsorship of our professional development opportunities, and through generous donors. Consider making a gift to promote and support global education.
