Office of International Programs is accepting nominations for 2018 International Educator of the Year award

Submitted by Mary K. Pyle

The Office of International Programs is now accepting nominations for the 2018 International Educator of the Year award. Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28. The International Educator of the Year award reception is a big part of K-State's International Education Week, which will be celebrated with events Nov. 12-16.

This award is an opportunity for an individual or department to recognize someone making significant contributions to advancing international education on K-State's campus. Faculty, staff, administrators or other members of the K-State community may be honored for major contributions and sustained commitment to internationalizing the university.

"The international educator of the year award program began in 2003 and it continues to be a great celebration for our K-State community," said Marcellus Caldas, assistant provost for international faculty collaborations and educational programs. "It represents years of faculty and staff commitment to highlight those individuals that are elevating international awareness and global education and exchange."

The honoree will be presented with a $1,000 award and a plaque at the International Educator of the Year award reception in November during International Education Week.
