THE INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION'S
ANDREW HEISKELL AWARDS FOR INNOVATION IN INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION
About the Andrew Heiskell Awards
The Institute of International Education created the Andrew Heiskell Awards in 2001 to promote and honor the most
outstanding initiatives being conducted in international higher education by IIENetwork member institutions. The
goals of IIE's Heiskell Awards are: to foster innovative ideas that will help international education professionals create
and sustain new opportunities for students and faculty; to bring international education to the forefront of education
policy; and to stimulate public awareness of the beneﬁts of study abroad and international educational exchange.
IIE's Heiskell Awards showcase the most innovative and successful models for internationalization of campuses, study
abroad, and partnership programs in practice today, to encourage the expansion and creation of programs based on
these successful models. To view past winners, visit www.iie.org/heiskellawards.
