NMSU’s Office of International and Border Programs is pleased to announce that on April 7 Dr. Manal Hamzeh was named the winner of the 2017 Globalization Award at a ceremony at the Nason House. Dr. Hamzeh, associate professor in the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies/Women’s Studies Program, was there to receive the award. Dr. Menking said a few words about each of the nominees and then presented the award to Dr. Hamzeh. In a nice coincidence, her long-time friends and colleagues, Playwright Jamil Khoury and Producer Malik Gillani, were there for the presentation.
The award is complemented by a $1,000 travel credit that can be used for professional activities.
