The University of Tulsa has received the Global Education Award from the Dialogue Institute of Southwest, a nonprofit educational organization that promotes understanding, respect and cooperation among faiths and cultures. TU was recognized at the institute’s annual Friendship Dinner and Awards Ceremony May 2 in Tulsa.
TU is home to a thriving international student population that supports more than 1,000 students from more than 70 countries. Also, the Center for Global Education encourages students to participate in one of its 700 study abroad opportunities for unique and rich cultural experiences. Vice President for Diversity and Engagement Jaqueline Caldwell received the accolade on behalf of TU.
“This award recognizes the university’s commitment not only to engaging our students with the world, but also to promoting intercultural understanding, mutual respect and inclusion both at home and abroad,” Caldwell said.
Other TU representatives in attendance at the awards ceremony included Andreya Williams, assistant director of Residential Life; Jane Kucko, vice president for Global Education; and Earl Johnson, vice president for enrollment management and student services.
