By Marisa Ramiccio

The International Affairs Committee has awarded the inaugural International Incentive Award to associate professor and director of global initiatives Dr. Bernardo Ramirez.

The award was instituted this year to incentivize the future of the College of Health and Public Affairs' global research, education and service outreach. The criteria for award nominations included the depth and breadth of internationally based teaching, research and service activities as conducted by faculty members.

In the committee's recommendation letter, the members cited Ramirez' development and implementation of the Virtual Study Abroad trip and his work with several universities, including Harvard, as reasons why he was chosen for this award. The committee also recognized his position as chair of the Association of University Programs in Health Administration's International Committee as well as his international presentations and published articles.  

As the winner of the International Incentive Award, Ramirez will receive a $2,000 prize for faculty professional development.
