Dr. Frank Fear, retired senior associate dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, will receive the Charles A. Gliozzo International Award for Public Diplomacy April 3 in the Huntington Club on the fourth floor of Spartan Stadium on the Michigan State University campus. This award recognizes a member of the greater MSU community, who is making significant contributions to public diplomacy through educating, training or promoting knowledge and understanding between faculty, staff, community members and international students, scholars and visitors. You may recall my December 15, 2011 Spotlight article on Dr. Fear. Nothing seemed to animate Frank more than when he had a group of international visitors on campus and was connecting them to Spartans who shared a common interest.
Congratulations, Frank! This is a very fitting recognition of your efforts to connect people from around the world.
