The culture of schools is influenced in part by the principal. The vision the principal holds for leadership and direction of the school becomes an important compass for the development of curriculum, pedagogy, and mindset of teachers and students. The educational leadership faculty at The University of Toledo believe that graduate students preparing to become principals must develop understandings and awareness of what it means to be globally competent. This case study illustrates how even a short trip to China can begin to shape the thinking of future principals toward this end.
