Two Pittsburgh-area campuses are among eight colleges nationally being singled out for awards by NAFSA: The Association of International Educators, the Washington, D.C., organization announced today.
The Awards are named for the late Sen. Paul Simon, (D-Ill.). an advocate of international education and foreign language instruction.
Carnegie Mellon University is among five schools receiving the 2010 Award for Comprehensive Internationalization, which the association said is intended to honor "overall excellence in campus internationalization." La Roche College was one of three other schools that received a Spotlight Award for a specific international program or initiative -- in La Roche's case, for its Pacem in Terris Program and an annual several-day global problems, global solutions conference, which examines a global issue.
In addition to Carnegie Mellon, the other four schools honored for overall internationization efforts are Hobart & William Smith Colleges in New York, Loyola University Maryland, Northeastern University in Massachusetts, and the University of San Francisco in California.
In addition to La Roche, the other schools singled out for specific initiatives were the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York and the College of the Atlantic in Maine.
