Global Students: Leadership Opportunities

Developing globally-minded leaders is one of the core functions of GSPD. We do this by intentionally involving global students in serving and equipping the Biola community, and by walking alongside these growing leaders as they discover and test their unique abilities. If you would like to join the team and participate in this leadership development process, consider applying to one of the positions below. We also invite community volunteers to share their skills and resources with Biola's global students.
