The Global Student Award recognizes one undergraduate and one graduate student who are leaders deeply engaged in international education on campus or abroad. International education advances learning and scholarship, builds understanding and respect among different peoples, and enhances constructive leadership in the global community. The award was established by UI International Programs and the Division of Student Life in 2019.
The Global Student Award will be presented by Russ Ganim, associate provost and dean of International Programs, during a WorldCanvass program on November 7, 2022, a prelude to International Education Week (November 14 - 19).
