Three faculty and staff members from the School of Global Studies and Partnerships (SGSP) received awards at the fall 2022 University Awards Convocation ceremony on Dec. 9. The ceremony honored Oklahoma State University faculty, staff, and administrators for their achievements over the semester.
Global Education Faculty Excellence Award- Michael Amory
This award honors a faculty member who integrates a global perspective into instruction, research and outreach. Dr. Michael Amory, assistant professor in the Department of English, served as the interim director of the English Language and Intercultural Center (ELIC). During his time at the ELIC, Amory oversaw the Compassionate Afghan Resettlement and English Services (CARES) program that welcomed 72 Afghan refugees to OSU. He worked hard to rejuvenate the ELIC after the global pandemic by forming new partnerships and revamping old ones. Because of his efforts, the ELIC welcomed students across the globe, significantly propelling both enrollment and country representation in just under a year.
