Special Characteristics of GTI
GTI is dedicated to the advancement of learning and the growth of the individual from a global perspective, recognizing the contributions of all cultures and the brotherhood of all mankind.
An Expectation of Excellence
GTI seeks students who show evidence of beliefs in obtaining academic excellence, integrity, and respect for human values. An interdisciplinary core of unique learning experiences compliments and enriches the more traditional courses that are offered, and also emphasizes the institute’s philosophy that excellence extends beyond scholarship. The institute values competency and personal growth of the student, and nurtures the individual’s own expectation of excellence. The atmosphere at GTI fosters a sense of concern for others, a maturing acceptance of responsibility for one’s own behavior, and a respect for social processes that ensure a lawful and human resolution of interpersonal and individual-group conflicts. There is a climate of expectation of excellence in thinking in developing prerequisite skill in leadership and professional success. The faculty’s approach to education is to believe that rigorous habits of inquiry and skill development ensue when one expects nothing less than the best of a student.
An American Institute with a Worldwide Reach Theme
The frontier on which GTI aims to build its reputation is one of quality education and openness to other cultures, in which students all sectors and regions are drawn to. The dominating resources of the institute are the students and faculty, who demonstrate a commitment to the unique environment of GTI’s classrooms and community.
GTI is a quality institution that maintains sensitivity to differing values and exhibits a deep concern for ethics; extends friendly help; sustains students through transitional periods of learning levels; insists on rational behavior; refrains from and prohibits any political, religious, or ethnic activities that would compromise the ability of the institute to stay free in its human relationships; and prizes academic freedom, which rests on mutual trust and respect.
The institute believes that the most important problems of society are constructed by people and the ways in which people interact with one another. All programs of the institute reflect an emphasis on re-mediating human factors, by promoting an understanding of people and society, so that leadership can reflect a humanitarian approach.
Campus life and learning is enhanced by the interplay among the people of this rich student body. Students from diverse backgrounds unite in the learning environments of the classroom, in the study room, in group learning segments, through independent and group research, community involvement, lectures, concerts, and in daily social activities.
