Apply for the APLU Institutional Award for Global Learning, Research, and Engagement by July 17

APLU is now accepting applications for its 2020 Institutional Award for Global Learning, Research, and Engagement. The award recognizes a public university excelling in its efforts to drive an inclusive approach to global engagement, research, and learning at their institution and measuring the impact of those efforts.

The application period for the award runs through July 17, 2020. The winner(s) of the award will be recognized at the 2020 APLU Annual Meeting, November 8-10, in Orlando, Florida. Past applicants are strongly encouraged to re-apply. In addition to selecting a winner of the main award, APLU will also select other institutions to receive “gold awards” in one or several of the four criteria of the primary award. Institutions can submit applications covering the past six years’ worth of efforts toward internationalization around these themes

The award recognizes a demonstrated commitment to and institutional evidence of:

  • Inclusivity—the degree to which the institution is committed to and successful in empowering all students through global learning;
  • Internationalization of Research and Engagement—the degree to which the institution is committed to the internationalization of research and engagement;
  • Leadership and Pervasiveness—the degree to which the institution’s leadership (at the president/chancellor or provost level) has made internationalization a priority for the institution and the degree to which internationalization pervades the culture across campus; and
  • Assessment—the degree to which the institution is committed to measuring progress and impact of internationalization across the institution.

As an organization bringing together North America’s public research universities, APLU is committed to public service, providing access to a high-quality global education for all students, and tackling global problems. Global learning is an essential element of higher education in the 21st Century – helping students imagine different futures and the role they can play in creating a fair and sustainable world. It is also increasingly key to competitiveness in the global economy.
