Bringing the Best and Brightest: Chancellor’s Awardee Acknowledged for Helping International Scholars Come to UC Davis

By Sheri Chow and Mary Martin-Mabry 

"The Chancellor’s Awards for International Engagement honor those on campus advancing the research, teaching, and service mission of UC Davis through their international engagement. For the third year, faculty and staff awardees were recognized by Chancellor Gary S. May at the International Connections Reception hosted by Global Affairs on March 7.

One of the honorees this year was Jennifer Aten, a human resources analyst in the Department of Neurology at UC Davis Health. She was nominated by the international scholar services team working within Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) for her exemplary service and tremendous impact on our international scholar community, as well as the campus community.

Aten plays an integral role in bringing international talent and perspective to the important research and clinical care done by the Department of Neurology and UC Davis Health. International scholars (postdoctoral scholars, faculty, researchers and staff) are assets to scientific innovation, economic growth and public diplomacy and she goes above and beyond to welcome and support them."
