Presidential Award of Excellence for Faculty Service to International Students


The Presidential Award of Excellence for Faculty Service to International Students recognizes a faculty member who has made extraordinary efforts to assist international students. The award consists of a check in the amount of $2,000 for the recipient. In addition, the recipient has the privilege to serve as “an agent for change” by having the authority to designate an additional $1,000 cash award to a departmental, college, or university effort/activity that facilitates international student integration into the fabric of the campus or local community.
 
Vision 2020 has called for Texas A&M University to provide a campus environment that welcomes and nurtures global diversity. Faculty members play a key role in these efforts by encouraging cultural sensitivity, making efforts to help international students, and facilitating integration of international students into campus life. The Presidential Award of Excellence for Faculty Service to International Students was established to recognize such efforts of faculty that assist international students beyond attaining their academic and research goals.
