Burniske Receives Global Leadership Award

Throughout his time at Purdue, Burniske has served as academic director for the four Mandela Washington Fellows Leadership Institutes and co-authored several NSF-funded projects, exemplifying his comprehensive leadership in globalization on Purdue’s campus. In support of Burniske’s nomination, Gerald Shively, associate dean and director of International Programs in Agriculture, said Burniske’s “impacts truly have been comprehensive and impactful in all three of Purdue’s land-grant mission areas. Gary’s enthusiasm for global programs is infectious, and his positive ‘can-do’ attitude is often the essential element in developing the teams necessary to successfully compete for external grants and contracts. Every day, Gary Burniske is working to help globalize learning, discovery, and engagement on Purdue’s campus.”
