Donald Nelson Award for Outstanding International Student Support

Donald Nelson served in the Office of International Programs at Miami University for 42 years before retiring as Administrator Emeritus in 2003. He started his career in 1961 as Adviser to Foreign Students, a position that evolved over the years until he became Director of International Education, supervising an office responsible for international student advising and admissions, study abroad advising, the administration of student exchanges, and the distribution of funds to support faculty engaged in international travel and research projects. Nelson remains an active member of the Oxford community and an advocate for international education to this day. This award honors his legacy and will be announced annually in November during International Education Week.
