International Educator Awards 2020

At no time in recent memory has international education been more important, nor have the challenges to it seemed as daunting.  As the current global pandemic underscores the crucial value of international collaboration and exchange among universities, the UF International Center is pleased to again invite nominations for the 2020 International Educator of the Year awards.

These awards are made annually in recognition of the outstanding contributions of faculty and staff to international education at the University of Florida. As in years past, three awards will be made:

  • Senior Faculty International Educator of the Year
  • Junior Faculty International Educator of the Year
  • Staff International Educator of the Year

Colleges are invited to submit nominations for each of these awards. Submission will open again in September 2021.

The UFIC International Educator awards are meant to recognize extraordinary contributions by UF faculty and staff in the area of international education. While we deeply value international research and other activities, the International Educator of the Year awards are intended primarily to recognize those whose efforts have furthered the educational mission of the university and made a difference in the lives of students—undergraduate or graduate; domestic or international – as teachers, trainers and mentors.
