The Peregrine Global Foundation was formed in 2018 out of a desire by Dr. Olin Oedekoven and Laurel Vicklund to give more to those in need. Through their worldwide experiences with Peregrine Academic Services and the Peregrine Leadership Institute, they saw how important it is to develop leaders who possess the right skills and values-based approaches to solving problems, as well as the need to continually improve the delivery of quality higher education to those who want to learn.

Partnering with other organizations like ACBSP to promote quality higher education.

We believe each person has the potential to do great things.

Peregrine Global conducted leadership development workshops in Ghana by focusing on values-based leadership, communications, and service to community.

Peregrine contributed $100,000 to Gillette College officials to help spark creative business programs.
