Bruce Tracy Award Recipients
This award is given to a NAFSA member in Region II whose professional and personal contributions to the fields of international education go beyond the normal expectation of the job. It may be someone who gives a great deal of personal time to programs for international or study abroad students or campus internationalization efforts, provides significant leadership at the regional or national levels, or simply reflects the ideals and goals of NAFSA through his/her professional commitment and dedication to the field.
The Bruce Tracy Award was renamed from the Outstanding NAFSA Member - Region II Award in 1993.
