Carlton Savage Award

This award is given to the international student who has contributed the most to increasing intercultural understanding at the University.

After many years of distinguished service as a diplomat in the United States Department of State, Mr. Savage came to American University to teach in the School of International Service. During his time at AU, faculty and students benefited from his knowledge and experience in foreign affairs. As the advisor to Pan Ethnon, a student organization in the School of International Service, Mr. Savage helped members attract outstanding speakers and plan programs promoting international understanding. He also served as a long-time advisor to Delta Gamma Sorority. After his retirement from AU, Mr. Savage remained active as a volunteer advisor to several student groups. Because of his extraordinary record as a diplomat, teacher, volunteer worker, and loyal friend, President George H. Williams presented Mr. Savage with a Presidential Citation from American University on March 29, 1973.
