Lee was presented with the IES Abroad Volunteer of the Year Award which recognizes an individual who has supported and strengthened the mission of the study abroad field through extraordinary volunteer efforts.
University of Iowa Assistant Provost of International Programs Doug Lee recently received the Institute for the International Education of Students Abroad Volunteer of the Year Award for his work assisting students throughout their studies and internships around the world.
International Education of Students Abroad, a study-abroad and internship agency that partners with the UI, recognizes a faculty member from any of its partner universities. The award seeks to honor an individual who uses their volunteer efforts to strengthen the missions of study-abroad programs across the globe.
Lee began at the UI in 1991 and assumed his current role in 2012. He said receiving this award is a reflection of what International Programs has done to improve the education that students receive at the university.
