By Bonnie Shea, director of communications, Global Affairs
"The fifth annual International Connections Reception, hosted by Global Affairs on March 5, brought together the UC Davis community to celebrate globally-engaged faculty, staff, and scholars.
Four faculty and staff members spanning four colleges, schools, and units were honored by Chancellor Gary S. May as Chancellor’s Awards for International Engagement recipients. One member of the Academic Senate and one member of the Academic Federation received the Academic Senate’s Excellence in Teaching in Study Abroad Awards. This year’s recipients of various Global Affairs grant and development programs were also announced, including for the inaugural Grants for Advancing Sustainable Development Goals.
'Faculty and staff are key to advancing UC Davis’ mission through innovative global engagement,' said Joanna Regulska, vice provost and associate chancellor of Global Affairs. 'I am thrilled to see their dedication to collaborating with partners locally and globally and to creating new and accessible global learning opportunities for our students.'"
