Shaw receives OIE’s 2009 Richard Reiff Award

Judy Shaw, associate provost for international education, received the 2009 Richard Reiff Award for Internationalization from UGA’s Office of International Education.

The award was presented March 26 at the annual OIE study-abroad reception for faculty and staff in recognition of their dedication and the university’s achievements in international education.

Named for the former executive director of international education at UGA, the Reiff Award honors faculty members who successfully develop, promote and implement international studies and programs. During his 31-year tenure at UGA, Reiff served the state by chairing the University System of Georgia Committee for Study Abroad for 17 years. He also was the state coordinator for study abroad during his last seven years at UGA.

“Dr. Shaw served for 16 years as the director of UGA at Oxford, in the process impacting as a teacher, a program director and an adviser the lives of hundreds of students, many of whom had not previously had many opportunities to explore the world outside their native Georgia,” said Provost Arnett C. Mace Jr. “The associate provost position has enabled Judy to take her vision-honed from the Oxford years-of what study abroad, international partnerships and collaboration, and a global perspective can and should be to the broader campus.”
