Nahlah Ayed Prize for Student Leadership & Global Citizenship
Each year, two students who demonstrate exceptional commitment and leadership skills, and whose actions are helping to bridge the local and the global, are awarded the Nahlah Ayed Prize for Student Leadership & Global Citizenship through Student Affairs.
Awarded by the International Centre for Students, through its World W.I.S.E. Resource Centre, the annual prize encourages students at the U of M to participate in horizon-expanding activities that celebrate diversity, curiosity, respect and mutual understanding and will develop global skill sets.
The World W.I.S.E. team works closely with the ICS Student Exchange staff to publicize the benefits of participating in the U of M’s growing student exchange program, but it also organizes a year-long calendar of events which includes: World Opportunities Week and the Welcome Dinner each fall, International Week each February, the annual Global Colours Photo Contest, the annual NGO Crawl, and the Nahlah Ayed Prize for Student Leadership and Global Citizenship.
World W.I.S.E. circulates a bi-weekly electronic newsletter and publishes the World W.I.S.E. magazine.
