"It is recognition to Texas Tech faculty and staff who have undertaken extraordinary efforts to expand our global engagement and the university's global image. While we have achieved milestones this year, we hope for even greater achievements in the next academic year."

The Global Vision Award categories, and this year's winners, are as follows:

The Global Vision Awards were first given in 2003 and have expanded since the beginning. The ceremony was a part of International Week that provided a weeklong celebration of different cultures from around the world.

Along with the Global Vision Awards, Texas Tech's Office of International Affairs hosted several events during International Week, including exhibits, forums, film viewings, lectures and activities for students to teach and celebrate different cultures around the world.
