Academy of Excellence in Global Engagement
NC State’s faculty and staff are the drivers of excellence in global engagement. The Academy of Excellence in Global Engagement recognizes their achievements and helps ensure NC State’s ongoing legacy of global leadership for the future.
Members of the Academy serve as mentors and role models for global success. They support professional development activities, serving as expert consultants to the Global Engagement Institute, as well as the Global 3D: Discussion, Discovery and Development series on critical issues in global higher education. Academy members are eligible to serve as Faculty Fellows in the Office of Global Engagement, promoting campus-wide global initiatives.
Faculty and staff recipients of awards or recognitions that honor individuals who have made significant contributions to NC State or the world in international research, scholarship, or service are eligible for membership. These recognitions include the following:
- Jackson Rigney International Service Award
- Outstanding Global Engagement Award
- Fulbright Award
- Global Engagement Institute participants who successfully complete program outcomes
- Faculty directors of study abroad programs offered on a regular basis
- Faculty researchers who support student research abroad or consistently host visiting international students, scholars and postdocs
Prospective Academy members will receive an invitation to join and must respond in order to be inducted. The Office of Global Engagement will recognize newly admitted Academy members during the annual Global Engagement Exposition in April.
By encouraging the next generation of globally-engaged leaders at NC State, Academy members will ensure the university’s ongoing work to address some of the world’s most pressing problems and will elevate the status of NC State’s global mission.
