Global Learning Peer Advisor Receives Leadership Award

PULLMAN, Wash. – Each year, 30-40 students, in addition to faculty/students and Registered Student Organizations (RSOs), are selected for the President’s Award for Leadership.

Meghan Nyquist, a Global Learning Peer Advisor in WSU’s Office of International Programs, is one of this year’s recipients. The award is based on leadership and engagement with Washington State University. Students considered for the award demonstrate efforts into providing change to WSU. Furthermore, students are measured within the framework of the Social Change Model of Leadership including: consciousness of self, commitment, collaboration, common purpose and other qualities.

Global Learning Peer Advisors are given the opportunity to share their study abroad experience with prospective study abroad students. As a Global Learning Peer Advisor, you lead Global Cougs 101 info sessions, present your global experience, help students with their study abroad program and plan, and participate in events put on by the Office of International Programs.

Nyquist will be honored at the 20th annual LEAD Awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 19, 2016 at 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
