A Message from Allan E. Goodman, President and Chief Executive Officer, IIE Internationalizing the Campus This issue of IIENetworker marks the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education. When we launched the awards in fall 2001, we knew that some campuses and colleagues were conducting new and exciting activities. We set out to identify these initiatives and showcase them, to serve as an inspiration to and a model for campuses around the world. We have been extremely gratified over these past five years to see the wide range of activities being conducted by campuses of all types and sizes—community colleges, large state universities, small liberal arts colleges, and everything in between, in all regions of the country. We are delighted to see how many more campuses now are making “international” a key component of what they do. Please join me in congratulating the 2006 Heiskell Award winners, George Mason University and The Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs, as well as our honorable mentions. You can read about their winning initiatives on pages 16-21 of this issue. On the IIENetwork website (www.iienetwork.org), you will find further details on this year’s winners, as well as a compendium of best practices encompassing all the winners and honorable mention recipients from the past five years. We hope that these examples continue to serve as a resource and an inspiration to others in the field. As this issue goes to press, we are planning a Spring conference at IIE’s New York headquarters to explore best practices in Internationalizing the Campus. We hope to see many of you here in New York. This anniversary presents a wonderful opportunity to examine the topic of Internationalizing the Campus from different perspectives. This issue features articles and commentary from educators from Australia, England, Finland, and Brazil, along with a number of U.S. colleagues. We hope you enjoy hearing from this geographically diverse group about many aspects of the task of preparing students to live, work and lead in a global environment. The Goldman Sachs Global Leaders program also marks its fifth anniversary this year, and Goldman Sachs Chairman and CEO Henry M. Paulson, Jr. offers some thoughts on preparing future leaders from the corporate perspective. As always, we look forward to hearing more about what your campus is doing. Allan E. Goodman http://www.iienetwork.org
