Recognizing Outstanding International Engagement
The Chancellor's Awards for International Engagement recognize UC Davis faculty and staff members for outstanding international engagement in carrying out the university’s mission of teaching, research and outreach.
Any active and full-time faculty (Academic Senate or Academic Federation) or staff member at UC Davis is eligible for nomination. There are two categories of awards: faculty (Academic Senate or Academic Federation) and staff.
The nominee must have significantly contributed to the internationalization of UC Davis, be a champion of building global connections, and be furthering the university’s goal of Global Education for All.
A nominee demonstrates substantial contributions in advancing UC Davis’ Strategic Plan through outstanding international engagement in teaching, research and outreach. This includes working with students, faculty and the broader community and serving as a resource for and an inspiration to colleagues and the community on global engagement. In addition, the nominee has engaged students in global learning through identifying and building innovative and creative global teaching and research opportunities.
