Dr. David Nugent received the Creekmore Award for Internationalization for advancing the university’s commitment to internationalization.

He is the founding director Emory’s Master’s in Development Practice (MDP) program, which combines cross-disciplinary academic study with field experience in global settings. In this role, he has expanded Emory’s network of strategic partnerships with leading international development organizations, including CARE, Oxfam, and Heifer International, as well as federal agencies such as the U.S. Agency for International Development. Last summer the program sent students abroad for 10-week field practicums with 21 organizations in 25 countries.
