In Honor of Homer Higbee
Homer D. Higbee served as a NAFSA life member, former president (1970-71), chair of the Field Service Steering Committee, and on the boards of trustees/directors of numerous professional organizations. He is known as one of the major figures in international education and a leading NAFSAn for more than 25 years. His landmark study of foreign student advising on American campuses in 1961 provided the first comprehensive profile of NAFSAns as a professional class.
The NAFSA International Education Award for Distinguished Service to NAFSA in Honor of Homer Higbee recognizes a NAFSAn who is currently involved in associational activities; has already contributed at least ten years of distinguished service to NAFSA’s membership; and plans to continue his/her involvement in the Association. In addition, the Awardee must have contributed significantly to the professional development of colleagues through mentorship and participation in numerous NAFSA activities.
