CALS has established a new award to recognize excellence in international activities. The award will honor an outstanding faculty or academic staff member engaged in international research, instruction, outreach, program development, or service. The award will be presented at the CALS Awards ceremony in the spring. The call for nominations will come out next month, so it’s not too soon to start thinking about colleagues whose global efforts stand out.
