We are excited by this opportunity to support those K-State faculty and instructors who are contributing to our international profile as outlined in K-State 2025," said Marcellus Caldas, assistant provost for international faculty collaboration and educational programs. The award was designed by Office of International Programs and the College International Advisory Committee that consists of one representative of each college and major unit on campus.
