The Student Leadership International Dialogue and Exchange (SLIDE) Program

16 students post with a royal blue "UB" flag in front of a canal in Venice, Italy on a trip with the Student Leadership International Dialogue and Exchange (SLIDE) Program.

If you’re a student interested in exploring new cultures and learning about different leadership styles around the world, this program is perfect for you.

What is SLIDE?

The UB Student Leadership International Dialogue and Exchange (SLIDE) Program is an abbreviated international learning experience specifically designed for UB student leaders, giving them an opportunity to learn about leadership and culture from a global perspective and interact firsthand with other student leaders from around the world. Through SLIDE, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Analyze historical and cultural types of leadership
  • Experience cultures that are different from their own
  • Reflect on their experiences from a holistic worldview perspective
  • Examine the reciprocal nature of leadership and culture

If you’re interested in other opportunities during your winter or spring breaks, we encourage you to consider the Alternative Break program.

Postponed Until Further Notice

We regret to announce that the SLIDE Program has been postponed until further notice. Student Engagement will work with the university and the SUNY system to determine when we can offer this program again. We look forward to hosting our student leaders on this trip in the future!
