INTERNATIONALIZING THE CAMPUS RESOURCES THE INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION’S 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.
