Heiskell Award


4/11/2013 12:00:00 AM

The Institute of International Education honored St. Cloud State with the 2013 Heiskell Award for "Best Practices in International Partnerships" – recognition of the university’s 11-year-old multidimensional partnership with the Universidad de Concepcion in Concepcion, Chile.

The Heiskell Awards showcase the most innovative and successful models for internationalizing the campus, study abroad, and international programs, particularly initiatives that remove institutional barriers and broaden the base of participation in international teaching and learning on campus.

Read a story about the Concepcion partnership, which owes much to the work of anthropology professor Rob Lavenda.

The other three 2013 top Heiskell Awards went to Susquehanna University in the category of Internationalizing the Campus, Pitt Community College for Internationalizing the Community College and Wake Forest University for Study Abroad.
