The University Award for Excellence in International Education each year recognizes one member of Binghamton University's faculty or staff for outstanding efforts in support of the university's longstanding commitment to internationalization.
Both Binghamton University faculty and staff are eligible to be nominated for this award. However, previous recipients of Chancellor's or University Awards whose outstanding contributions to international education were cited as grounds for their selection should not be nominated for this award.
A Selection Committee shall be appointed, comprised of faculty, staff, and students. The selection criteria for the University Award for Excellence in International Education will consist of measures of the quality, quantity, and impact of an individual's efforts in bringing an international perspective to the university's curricular, co-curricular, and research activities. These criteria will include an evaluation of the nominee's contribution in some or all of the following categories. (Other contributions will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.)
The dossier must include a letter of nomination (which may be individually or jointly written) detailing the nominee's contribution to international education as outlined above, plus any other efforts the nominator(s) believe(s) have contributed to Binghamton's goal of becoming a fully internationalized institution. This letter must be accompanied by the nominee's resume or curriculum vitae and two to four additional letters of support written by people personally knowledgeable about the nominee's internationalizing efforts. (These letters may be individually or jointly written; nominators are urged to obtain letters documenting the full range and impact of the nominee's contributions.) Additional materials (program descriptions, publications, reports, statistics, etc.) are not required but should be submitted as appropriate to support the nomination.
Nomination dossiers should be submitted to the Vice Provost for International Affairs no later than Friday, January 4, 2013. The complete nomination dossier should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
