NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee State University is one of five schools nationwide to win the Andrew Heiskell Award for innovation in international education.

The awards from the New York-based Institute of International Education showcase the most innovative and successful models for making campuses more international and creating study abroad programs. TSU won a special award in the category of internationalizing Historically Black Colleges and Universities for an initiative on diversity and international affairs.

Since its creation in 2012, TSU’s Office of Diversity and International Affairs has grown from hosting 79 international students to 900, and its study abroad students have increased from 36 to more than 120.

The award will be presented at a ceremony in California in March.
