Recognizing Outstanding International Engagement
UC Davis faculty and staff engage with communities throughout the world to find solutions for today's most pressing challenges. Whether through major research projects, collaborations with colleagues abroad, or through promoting global learning, innovative pedagogy, or the facilitation of these activities, UC Davis faculty and staff engage actively and passionately to create positive change.
The Chancellor's Awards for International Engagement recognize individual faculty and staff members for their outstanding international engagement in carrying out the university’s missions of teaching, research, and service.
Any active and full-time faculty (Academic Senate or Academic Federation) or staff member at UC Davis is eligible for nomination, with the exception of those currently working in Global Affairs at UC Davis.
There are two categories of awards:
- faculty (Academic Senate or Academic Federation)

- minimum of five years in a full-time faculty position at UC Davis
- carrying out cutting-edge research with a global focus and/or in collaboration with colleagues and institutions abroad;
- creating innovative global learning opportunities for students as UC Davis moves towards Global Education for All; or
