ACE, SUNY COIL Announce Second Round of Internationalization Technology Awards

March 21, 2014

Xavier University, Glenville State College, and Fayetteville State Honored

​ACE and the State University of New York Collaborative Online International Learning (SUNY COIL) Center today announced the winners of an inaugural internationalization online learning award.

The Advancing Internationalization Through Collaborative Online International Learning awards, which recognize emerging initiatives, are the second set of honors to be bestowed by ACE and SUNY this month as part of an Asahi Net International (ANI)-sponsored program that aims to recognize and promote the use of technology to enhance institutional internationalization and global competence among students at U.S. colleges and universities. The Leaders in Internationalization Through Technology awards, which recognize established programs, were presented March 10 at ACE’s 96th Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Today’s winners were honored at SUNY’s 6th annual Collaborative Online International Learning Conference in New York City. Xavier University (OH) Provost Scott A. Chadwick, Glenville State College (WV) Provost and Chief Academic Officer John M. Peek, and Fayetteville State (NC) University Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Jon M. Young were on hand to accept the awards.

“We are pleased to partner with the SUNY COIL Center and Asahi Net International on these awards, which will help Xavier University, Glenville State College and Fayetteville State University harness technology to offer their students excellent opportunities for international learning,” said Patti McGill Peterson, ACE’s presidential advisor for global initiatives. “Not every student has the opportunity to study abroad, but the types of innovative approaches the SUNY COIL Center brings to the table, alongside other on-campus internationalization efforts, will ultimately aid higher education institutions in bringing the wider world into the classroom.”

“The SUNY COIL Center is a pioneering institute that has vastly expanded our capacity for online learning and enabled us to provide students a globally-rich higher education experience without requiring study abroad,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “By bringing the unique opportunity of COIL to students, college campuses and partnering institutions are enhancing the value of the degrees and programs they offer.”
