Award Description

The Global Corners Award assists the University of Oregon in its efforts to recruit and retain promising students who come from all corners of the globe, and whose presence on campus helps the university to advance its strategic interests in internationalization. Consequently, the Global Corners Award helps to implement the UO’s Strategic Framework for 2016-2021, which identifies “enhancing diversity and global reach by recruiting top international students” as a key strategic initiative, against the backdrop of “educating the whole person, and to fostering the next generation of transformational leaders and informed participants in the global community.”
