<![CDATA[Globie Awards Ceremony]]> The journey of international students and scholars can be challenging and those who undertake challenges sometimes need help along the way. The Office for International Students and Scholars (OISS) is only one of many offices on campus that work with MSU's international population. Everyone on our campus and in our community plays a role in the internationalization of MSU.

This award is given to individuals who have distinguished themselves by their service to international students and scholars. OISS will honor these unsung heroes who, through acts of sheer kindness both small and large, help international students and scholars through the challenges that they face. 

The time to honor the Globie Award winners is on April 5, 2017 from 4-6 p.m. on the third floor of the international center!
