The International Affairs Faculty Council will host the inaugural International Scholarship Symposium on Friday, February 27, 2015 from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. in 130 Page Hall at the John Glenn School of Public Affairs.
This symposium will bring together the Ohio State community and other key partners who engage, or share interest, in international research. The schedule will include four interactive panels on multi-disciplinary international themes, and feature a poster session during lunch.
Ohio State has been selected to receive an Andrew Heiskell Honorable Mention Award for its Ethiopia One Health initiative in recognition of the growing success of its international partnership with Addis Ababa University, Gondar University and other research and regulatory institutes in Ethiopia. One Health Ethiopia connects Ohio State’s expertise in the seven health science areas and five other academic units with 19 Ethiopian and U.S. institutes to improve health and build capacity in sub-Saharan Africa, and provides mutually beneficial learning opportunities for Ethiopian and Ohio State students.
The Heiskell Awards honor the most outstanding initiatives in international higher education among the 1,400 member campuses of the Institute of International Education (IIE). The winning campuses are notable for their geographic diversity, with campuses in nine U.S. states as well as universities in Ethiopia, South Korea and Russia.
