Colorado State University Professor Robin Reid received the 2014 Michael P. Malone International Leadership Award for her contributions to advancing international education at public and land-grant institutions.
The award is sponsored by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
“She is a passionate advocate who displays her infectious enthusiasm for her work at every level,” said Rick Miranda, provost and executive vice president of CSU, in a press release.
Reid is director of the Center for Collaborative Conservation, a professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, and a senior scientist at the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory – all based in Colorado State University’s Warner College of Natural Resources.
Reid is working to transform international higher education to be more inclusive of under-represented groups. For the past 27 years, she has led education, research and outreach in Africa, Asia and North America.
