Dalila Suhonjic Honored with Presidential Citation
Suhonjic draft Teaneck, NJ (September 28, 2005) — Dalila Suhonjic, a resident of Hackensack, was honored at Fairleigh Dickinson University’s academic convocation on September 28, 2005, with a Presidential Citation.
University President J. Michael Adams presented the award and applauded Suhonjic, who is the Director of Global Initiatives in the Office of Global Learning,
Adams noted that Suhonjic joined the University in 2001 to help bring the global mission of the institution to life. In addition to arranging to bring ambassadors to campus for lectures and dinners and orchestrating videoconferences with the United Nations, she has fostered collaborations with the FDU faculty and the Global Virtual Faculty (GVF).
The GVF program consists of a cadre of distinguished scholars and practitioners from around the world who serve as Global Virtual Faculty members in partnership with the on-campus faculty in teaching of our on-line courses. Suhonjic has recruited and cultivated members of the Global Virtual Faculty — who range from a professor of literature at the University of Mumbai, India, to a political scientist from Chile to a forensic scientist from the United Kingdom to an environmentalist from Hungary.
Suhonjic’s award makes special mention of her skills as a facilitator and a “driver of ideas.” Adams concluded by saying “For adding vibrant dimensions to our global mission, I gratefully present you with this Presidential Citation.”
