International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This year during IEW, President Thrasher will receive the 2017 Senator Paul Simon Award for Internationalization, awarded by NAFSA: Association of International Educators, in Washington D.C. This award is significant because it “recognizes U.S. colleges and universities that are making significant progress toward comprehensive internationalization, especially those using innovative and creative approaches.” FSU is one of only four institutions to be selected in 2017.
