Two Pittsburgh colleges win awards for international education

Two Pittsburgh colleges have won awards for "internationalizing" their campuses from the Washington-based NAFSA: Association of International Educators.

LaRoche College in McCandless won a 2010 Senator Paul Simon Spotlight Award, which highlights a specific campus initiative, for its "Pacem In Terris" program. Carnegie Mellon University in Oakland won a 2010 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization, which recognizes overall excellence in campus internationalization.

The eight awardees will be recognized on June 4 at the International Plenary and Luncheon during NAFSA's 2010 Annual Conference & Expo in Kansas City, Mo.

The awards are named for the late Illinois senator Paul Simon, who was a strong advocate throughout his career for international education.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
