BEST PRACTICES 2013 IIE Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education The Institute of International Education created the Andrew Heiskell awards in 2001 to promote and honor the most outstanding initiatives that are being conducted in international higher education by IIENetwork member universities and colleges. By recognizing excellence and innovation, the Institute hopes to support IIENetwork members in their endeavors and to promote a comprehensive range of efforts to make campuses more international. The 2013 Heiskell Awards are for best practices in the following four categories: Internationalizing the Campus, Study Abroad, International Partnerships and Internationalizing the Community College. Special recognition is also awarded to four campuses that have demonstrated success in internationalizing the professions. The awards aim to recognize exceptional programs that bring an international component to higher education and serve as a model for internationalizing campuses, while also working to remove institutional barriers and broadening the base of participation in international teaching and learning on campus. During the past 12 years, the Heiskell awards have recognized nearly 100 innovative programs that demonstrate best practices in higher education internationalization. The Heiskell Awards exist not only to honor existing programs but also to inspire new ones, and we hope that the best practices outlined below will be adapted to the needs of many additional institutions. Readers can find full profiles of this year’s winning initiatives, and profiles of the past decade of award-winning, innovative international programs at: www.iie.org/heiskellawards. CATEGORY 1: INTERNATIONALIZING THE CAMPUS WINNER: SUSQUEHANNA UNIVERSITY, GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES GO Susquehanna University is in a central Pennsylvania river valley, but it is also in a game preserve in the Gambia, West Africa, and among Incan ruins in the Andes Mountains. The Global Opportunities (GO) program, which is the centerpiece of Susquehanna University’s recently-revised core curriculum, requires every student to have an off-campus immersion experience of at least two weeks, followed by a creditbearing critical reflection on that experience once they are back on campus. Susquehanna is among only a handful of schools to mandate a study-away experience for all students. The campus has gone even further in requiring a post-travel course in which students reflect on how that experience changed them. Students receive credit for this innovative coursework, which includes class discussions, performances and creative writing, and centers around cross-cultural learning goals such as understanding and recognizing ethnocentrism. Susquehanna offers a vast array of choices—more than 90 semester-long “GO Long” programs on six continents, including several programs exclusive to SU students. Each of the more than 25 Susquehanna faculty-designed “GO Short” programs last 12 at least two weeks, during semester breaks or summer. Some focus on a specific major or interest; others are built around a service project, such as SU CASA, an award-winning program that takes students to Costa Rica and Nicaragua to serve congregations, clinics, hospitals, and refugee and immigrant communities. With the Global Opportunities program in place, 100 percent of Susquehanna students have an off-campus study experience, up from 30 percent three years ago. To further its overarching goal of internationalizing the campus, Susquehanna is also recruiting more international students and faculty. More than 30 faculty members hail Susquehanna students and French volunteers celebrate their work together on a restoration project at the 14th century Villandraut castle. www.iie.org/iienetworker http://www.iie.org/heiskellawards http://www.iie.org/iienetworker
