20 students selected for Vermeer International Leadership Program
The Vermeer International Leadership Program is a year-long, in-depth cohort leadership experience in which Iowa State University students learn how companies operate on an international scale. Launched in fall 2015, the program is sponsored by Vermeer Corporation, a global industrial and agricultural equipment company. It is administered through Iowa State's Leadership Studies Program, coordinated by the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics.
The 20 students selected for the 2018-2019 academic year cohort will identify and research a global challenge as part of their leadership courses, engage in leadership development activities and travel to Vermeer headquarters in Pella to interview team members. They will also spend a week at the Vermeer Europe, Middle East and Africa facility in Goes, Netherlands, over the university's spring break.
