INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO CAMPUS INTERNATIONALIZATION Celebrating 10 Years of the 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 being conducted in international higher education by IIENetwork member institutions. Over the past decade, the Heiskell Awards have recognized more than 80 programs for their excellence and innovation. The Awards have showcased the most innovative and successful models for internationalization of campuses, study abroad, and partnership programs in practice today, and have encouraged the expansion and creation of programs based on these successful models. The goals of IIE’s Andrew 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 international educational exchange. More than any thing, the winners of the Andrew Heiskell Awards inspire us w it h t he impact t hat investments in international education can have on individuals: the Indian student who earned an MA in environmental studies and now provides disaster relief for his country; the American undergraduate who studied Arabic in Egypt and now translates the language for a domestic audience; a member of Kenya’s Maasai community who came to the United States for a university degree and now helps children in her community stay in school.
