CWRU Study Abroad Advisor Receives Outstanding New Professional Award

The Center for International Affairs is proud to announce that one of our own study abroad advisors in the Office of Education Abroad, Autumn Beechler, was recently awarded the NAFSA: Association of International Educators Region VI Dorothy Brickman award for Outstanding New Professional. The award is presented to NAFSA members who have made significant contributions to their campus, their regional NAFSA organization, and the field of international education.  NAFSA is the world’s largest nonprofit association dedicated to international education and exchange and Region VI is comprised of international education professionals living and working in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio.
Nominated by Cami Thompson, CWRU’s International Student and Scholar Liaison, Autumn was recommended for always “going above and beyond in the Office of Education Abroad.” In addition to advising students on study abroad options, Autumn also is actively involved in campus leadership development as well as expanding the office’s outreach; including representing the Center for International Affairs at over 30 fairs, orientations, presentations, and panels.  Additionally, she was selected to present to her colleagues and peers at both the 2013 and 2014 Regional NAFSA Conferences held in Indiana and Kentucky.   
We congratulate Autumn on being recognized for her excellent professionalism and are delighted to have Region VI’s Outstanding Professional right here on our very own CWRU campus.
