Diversity Abroad is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion in International Education (EDIIE) and Global Student Leadership Awards. This year’s recipients have demonstrated a commitment to advancing diversity and inclusive excellence within international education on an individual, institutional, and organizational level, as well as students who represent Diversity Abroad’s mission to diversify global education.

The awards will be presented at the 5th Annual Diversity Abroad Conference, Embracing the Future of Global Education, in Minneapolis, Minnesota on March 22, 2017. 

 

ORGANIZATIONAL AWARD: FOUNDATION FOR INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

FIE is a London-based, non-profit educational organization, providing programs in partnership with approximately 50 universities. FIE has established the Diversity and Inclusivity Scholarship Route which resulted in dialogue groups on national identity, social justice, and social inequality, a film project on multiculturalism and multi-religious identity, and FIE’s first student blogger.

“We are honored to receive this award. It will no doubt serve to inspire us to further our journey towards creating the best, most supporting environment for all students on our programs. By seeking out and helping to develop the contributions of diverse students within the study abroad environment, a tremendous depth is added to the learning, living and working experiences for everyone in the FIE community,” said Dr. Julie Andreshak-Behrman, Chief Academic Officer.
