For the second year in a row, Fresno State has been selected for a national Excellence and Innovation Award from the American Association of State Colleges and Universities for its dedication to campus life and leadership.
Fresno State won one of two International Education Awards for its work to expand international recruitment of faculty and students and to increase study abroad opportunities.
In 2010, Fresno State launched an initiative that began with an assessment of programs and identification of strategies to internationalize the campus. AASCU noted that “Fresno State is a majority-minority university and the sole major university in the area, making critical its mission to provide university education to the region.”
In 2013, the University became the first public institution in California to administer the International Student Barometer, where students ranked Fresno State first or second in the U.S. in categories such as “University Orientation” and “Language Support.”
The awards will be presented Oct. 25 at the opening session of AASCU’s Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.
