Campus Recognized for Internationalization
On June 3, 2011, the IUPUI Campus received a Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization. The award, named for the late Senator Paul Simon (D-IL), goes to outstanding and innovative efforts in campus internationalization.
Professor George E. Edwards, the founding director of the law school’s Program in International Human Rights Law (PIHRL) attended the ceremony in Vancouver, British Columbia, where IUPUI Chancellor Charles Bantz accepted the award. According to a university press release, “IUPUI capitalized on strong international exchange partnerships to create a campus-wide strategic partnership model. With a largely non-traditional student population, IUPUI has created a culture on its Indiana campus that allows the campus and wider community to engage the world.”
Named for the late Senator Paul Simon, (D–Ill.), the award goes to outstanding and innovative efforts in campus internationalization. Sen. Simon was well known as a strong supporter of international education and foreign language learning.
