Sutton Faculty and Staff Awards for Study Abroad
In honor of Dr. Susan Buck Sutton, the first Associate Vice Chancellor for International Affairs at IUPUI, these awards recognize individuals who have supported and enhanced study abroad programing at IUPUI. The IUPUI Office of International Affairs is pleased to invite nominations to recognize outstanding faculty and staff members dedicated to promoting education abroad at IUPUI.
The Susan Sutton Awards are given to one faculty member and one staff member each year who promote a campus climate where students are encouraged to study abroad and new programs are developed and supported. The winners of these awards should demonstrate their merit not based on the essential functions of their jobs but instead through a commitment to international education which is over and above their primary job duties.
A full description of the award is available for download here.
- Deadline: January 5th, 2015
- Eligibility: All IUPUI faculty and staff are eligible for nomination. Self-nomination is not permitted. Past recipients are not eligible for three years after receiving a Sutton Award.
