In response to rising global challenges and rapid social change, preparing university students to have competence, global and multicultural perspective as well as humanitarian and ethical responsibilities to take up the leadership role is imperative. The Global Youth Leadership Institute at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is an innovative attempt that tries to respond to the emerging need for leadership training in the higher education sector by providing more targeted and coordinated effort in moving the university leadership movement forward. In this paper, the background, rationale, structure, vision and the way forward of the Institute are discussed.
