Joanna Regulska, vice provost and associate chancellor of Global Affairs at the University of California, Davis, has been honored as the first-ever recipient of the Senior International Officer (SIO) Award from the Institute of International Education (IIE). The award, which was presented to Regulska in Washington, D.C. on May 29 by IIE President and CEO Allan E.

During the 2018 International Research Conference at UC Davis, hosted by Global Affairs, over 200 experts from 22 countries came together to develop strategies for international research collaboration. Presentations covered pioneering research breakthroughs as well as ongoing research developments that have reached levels of urgency. Take the keynote of Mills College President Elizabeth L. Hillman, whose address honed in on sexual harassment in the workplace—and highlighted that such sexual harassment should be viewed every bit as serious as research misconduct.
This September 17 and 18, leaders in research, international education, government and industry converged at UC Davis with a common purpose: developing innovative strategies for international research within today’s rapidly changing political and research environments.
