Agnes Scott College Honored with NAFSA: Association of International Educators 2020 Spotlight Award


Agnes Scott College has received NAFSA’s 2020 Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award for Campus Internationalization. The college received this award in recognition of the powerful impact that its SUMMIT Global Journeys program has on our students and on our campus community. Global Journeys courses are semester-long, full-credit courses that include a one-week, faculty-led global immersion experience halfway through the semester. The global immersion experience covers 13 to 15 destinations within and outside of the United States every year. The one-week travel segments connect our students with the world and help them to ground their liberal arts learning by developing a global perspective already in the first year of their college experience. While the pandemic currently interferes with physical travel, Agnes Scott’s Global Journeys are being offered in an innovative virtual format this academic year.
