University of Calgary Internationalization Achievement Awards postponed until 2021
The University of Calgary Internationalization Achievement Awards, originally scheduled to take place this April, has been postponed until 2021.
We received a positive number of nominations in most categories. In some, however, we would like to see a larger pool from an extended time-period. In addition, given the budgetary constraints now faced by Alberta universities, it seems prudent to reconsider the timing of our awards celebration.
Next year, we will consider nominations from a two-year period, and will celebrate the accomplishments of the recipients at an event in the spring. The nominations that we received will be held by UCalgary International and will remain valid next year for the 2021 Awards, including all standing nominations from 2019.
The UCIA Awards recognize and celebrate the outstanding contributions of students, faculty, staff and community members in progressing our institutional commitment to excellence in internationalization.
