Nominations open for International Educator of the Year
The Office of International Programs is accepting nominations for the 2014 International Educator of the Year award. Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31.
The International Educator of the Year award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to advancing international education on our campus. Faculty, staff, administrators or other members of the K-State community may be honored for major contributions and sustained commitment to internationalizing our campus.
Provost April Mason will announce the winner and present the honoree with a $1,000 award at the International Educator of the Year award reception from 5-6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, in the Tadtman Boardroom in the K-State Alumni Center.
The International Educator of the Year award reception is a big part of K-State's International Education Week, celebrated Nov. 17-21. The week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and Department of State. It was created to celebrate the benefits of global education and exchange to better prepare students for global environments and promote the benefits of studying abroad, learning and exchanging international experiences.
