The Institute of International Education announced today the winners of its annual Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education. The competition, which began in 2001, seeks to recognize American colleges that have made the most significant attempts to provide international experiences for their students.
This year, awards were broken down into three categories. The winners were the University of Delaware, for internationalizing the campus; Emory University and Florida A&M University, for study abroad; and the State University of New York system, for international-exchange partnerships. The institute, a nonprofit organization perhaps best known for running the Fulbright fellowships and producing the annual “Open Doors” report on foreign-student enrollments, also gave honorable mentions to Bard College, North Carolina A&T State University, the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire, and Valdosta State University.
