Sofia Mogilevskaya Honored for Global Engagement

A recent ceremony honoring Sofia Mogilevskaya boasted, appropriately, a number of international participants. Scholars, colleagues, and former students from around the world joined the online ceremony to recognize her technical contributions and celebrate her outstanding mentorship toward international students.

Sofia Mogilevskaya received the all-University Award for Global Engagement in recognition of her outstanding contributions to global education and international programs. Mogilevskaya led three study abroad programs and was instrumental in establishing contacts with local practitioners, faculty, and students to assist with lectures, field trips, and social events. Mogilevskaya served on the review committee for the Twin Cities Study Abroad Scholarship, and in 2009, received an award from the Learning Abroad Center for her work to promote and support education abroad. Mogilevskaya played a key role in establishing and maintaining a partnership with Italy’s University of Brescia. She led a short course on mechanics for the green economy, which was attended by students from around the world and led to a research and educational collaboration between the University of Trento and CEGE. Mogilevskaya worked closely with the University of Seville and collaborated with experts in Switzerland, Cyprus, Hong Kong, Ukraine, South Africa, France, and Germany. She has advised or co-advised 12 international students since 2003, and she helped recruit more than 15 students from leading Russian universities to doctoral programs in CEGE.
