Great Lakes Consortium
Each year, the Great Lakes Consortium for International Training and Development supports international programming for both local communities and communities throughout the globe. The program has supported humanitarian, community development and educational initiatives in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The consortium has also supported delegations of visitors to the United States, specifically the northwest Ohio region, to build connections between local and global leaders.
The mission of the Great Lakes Consortium for International Training and Development is to initiate, seek support for and coordinate international training and development efforts linking and enhancing capacity and resources with needs in the world community. The consortium was established by Bowling Green State University, Lourdes University, the University of Toledo and Great Lakes Community Action Partnership (then WSOS Community Action Commission) in 1999. GLCAP is the designated Consortium Manager and Contract Agent, which is a nonprofit organization.
