IUPUI wins Simon Award
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) wins 2011 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization. The award was presented to Chancellor Charles Bantz during a ceremony in Vancourver at the NAFSA: Association of International Educators.
Of this honor, Chancellor Bantz said "IUPUI brings its natural strengths in civic engagement to these partnerships by incorporating community-based service learning into study abroad experiences. This practice-based approach to international learning has the additional advantage of being a more rewarding, meaningful, and enlightening experience—something that has been mentioned many times by students who post blogs while abroad on IUPUI’s web site."
