March 16, 2010MU's Council for International Initiatives invites nominations for its "International Engagement Awards" to recognize the outstanding work carried out by faculty, staff, and students to internationalize the University of Missouri as outlined in the International Expectations. These annual awards recognize six to ten people per year across all three categories. A subcommittee of the Council for International Initiatives will evaluate nominations and determine awardees, who will be honored at an event in April. We are grateful to Provost Brian Foster for his support of this new initiative to promote and recognize international work of MU faculty, staff, and students. Awards will be made in three categories:
We will recognize meaningful and sustained commitments to international work, whether directly on campus or brought back to the campus from an engagement abroad. In order to demonstrate their effect upon internationalizing the campus, nominees must clearly indicate the concrete impact made upon scholarship, students, or MU programs by their international work.
We encourage nominations and self-nominations. In the case of nominations, we will contact individuals whose names are put forward by deans, chairs, staff, or students in order to secure the necessary application materials. Nominations and all supporting documents for each award category should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1, 2010.
Electronic documents should be in a readily available format, including .doc, .pdf, .rtf, .txt, and .jpg formats for text and images. Forms requiring a signature or appearing originally as paper copies, including the nomination form, some transcripts, and some letters of recommendation, may be scanned or may include electronically reproduced signatures. We will inform winners by April 15, 2010. The date and time of the recognition event will be announced.
