29th Annual Celebration and Awards Gala

The International House’s Annual Celebration and Awards Gala, held on April 27, 2017 was truly a special gathering of our I-House residents, alumni, and I-House’s mission of promoting a world of greater peace and understanding through friendship.

It was an outstanding evening under the dome honoring Sir Desmond Rea with the Global Ambassador of Peace and Inspiration Award, Dr. Arlene Blum with the Alumna of the Year Award, and Dean S. Shankar Sastry with the Distinguished Alumni Professor of the Year Award.

I-House resident hosts welcomed guests at the red carpet Gala entrance. More than half are I-House scholarship or fellowship recipients who have chosen to give back to I-House by serving as ambassadors for this festive evening. You can find more Gala 2017 photos on the International House Facebook page. We look forward to welcoming alumni and friends to next year's Gala!
