The Office of the Vice Provost for International Affairs has awarded a total of $350,000 to 25 faculty projects designed to internationalize undergraduate teaching, learning, and research at Cornell. Successful proposals involve faculty and students across eight colleges and schools, who are working on projects worldwide. The ICC awards are administered by the Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies and by Cornell Abroad.
The Einaudi Center published a new flyer featuring the 2014 highlights of the Center and its core international programs. Please contact us if you would like to receive a copy or click here to see the electronic version.

“The Fellowship has created opportunities for me to become acquainted with the different programs of the Einaudi Center and to start networking with other faculty across different departments and colleges whose research is also international in scope. I would like to find ways of making my own courses visible to and relevant for students from across the disciplines, to allow them to see my courses as a kind of education in intercultural literacy – rather than as a just a Comparative Literature class.” – Andrea Bachner.
