About the Global Village Alumni Network
The Global Village Alumni Network was organized and chartered in 2009 by a group of graduates from the Global Village (GV). Today, GV alumni on record total 2,122 people in 139 foreign countries. It’s led by an executive board.
We are proud alumni of Global Village and very honored to serve as the executive board of our Global Village Alumni Network (GVN)! Global Village is the place where we spent a few memorable and significant weeks of our lives … weeks that could become years once you fell in love with the magic that this program is able to realize. For us, it’s like we’ve never been back home since our class … because this program and the people who run it became part of our family, and this place is home for all the GV alumni.
An experience of change is hard to explain. The Global Village experience changes you in ways you may not even realize at that time. That is the story of the majority of villagers, several years after their memorable Global Village experience on Lehigh University’s campus.
It’s not only fun to be involved, but it is also important. The intimate involvement of the alumni in the life of the village creates the bond across the years that make our network of alumni unique and amazing.
As we give back, we get more than we give: a Global family. Each alum holds in their hands the power to push GV forward.
Your pride makes Global Village shine.
Your involvement makes Global Village grow.
Your contributions make Global Village strong.
Together, we keep the Global Village spirit alive so that new generations can step in our footsteps.
