The Texas Tech University Office of International Affairs has recognized 11 individuals and groups for their commitment to the university’s globalization efforts during the annual Global Vision Awards.

“The winners of the Global Vision Awards were recognized for their outstanding contributions in 2016 to the comprehensive internationalization vision of Texas Tech University,” said Sukant Misra, associate vice provost for international programs. “This year’s award winners are the epitome of academic excellence.”

The awards were announced by Misra and Ambassador and Vice Provost for International Affairs Tibor Nagy and presented by Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec and Provost Michael Galyean. Schovanec and Gaylean each gave brief remarks congratulating the winners.

The Global Vision Awards originated in 2003 to show appreciation for each winner’s generosity and continued support of Texas Tech’s work towards becoming more globally connected and have expanded year by year as the university’s global engagement has grown significantly. The ceremony is a part of International Week, a weeklong celebration of different cultures from around the world. Award winners are chosen by a subcommittee of the International Affairs Council, which includes representatives from each college and several administrative units.
