Submitted by Mary K. Pyle

The Office of International Programs celebrates its 15th anniversary of the International Educator of the Year award. Nominations for the 2015 the International Educator of the Year are due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct 28.
Read the nomination criteria and information about previous awardees.

The award program began in 2003 to recognize 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.

"The 2015 international educator of the year award is a benchmark for our K-State community, representing 15 years of faculty and staff commitment to elevate international awareness and celebrate global education and exchange," said Marcellus Caldas, assistant provost for international faculty collaborations and educational programs.

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 on Thursday, Nov. 19, 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 this year from Nov. 13-21. The week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and Department of State. It was created to better prepare students for global environments and promote the benefits of studying abroad, learning and exchanging international experiences.
