The Center for Global Studies

CENTER FOR GLOBAL STUDIES

In meetings held in 2008, the presidents of Restoration Movement schools across the nation discussed the need for doctoral level education for leaders serving around the world. As an outcome of these meetings, conversations, and prayer, the idea for the Center for Global Studies (CGS) and the Ph.D. in Leadership Studies concept were born. The CGS Advisory Board consists of representatives from each affiliate school including: Cincinnati Christian University, Emmanuel Christian Seminary, Hope International University, Johnson University, Kentucky Christian University, Lincoln Christian University, Milligan College, and TCM International. Each participating university agreed to share resources where appropriate and support the efforts of the CGS and proposed Ph.D. program. Johnson was chartered to develop an online Ph.D. program in Leadership Studies that represented the mission and intent of the CGS. This Ph.D. program, while advised by the CGS Board, is governed by Johnson University.
