St. Lawrence University's Washington Semester program has received special recognition from American University, noting the successful 30 years of the institutions' partnership.

The recent American University/Washington Semester Program inter-institutional meeting held in Washington, D.C. included a celebration of the program's 60th anniversary. St. Lawrence, and its representative Nancy Pierce, director of off-campus programs, received an award, signed by the president of American University and the Dean of the Washington Semester Program, stating, "We are pleased to present you with this Special Recognition Award for your leadership in fostering the continuing relationship between St. Lawrence University and the Washington Semester Program. Since affiliation with the program in 1974, 520 students from your university have attended - the second-greatest number of any of our institutional partners. Your stewardship of the Washington Semester and the exacting standards required of the St. Lawrence nominees are most appreciated by our faculty and staff."

In the fall 2007 semester, 13 St. Lawrence students participated in the program; 15 are scheduled to participate in the Washington Semester in spring, 2008.

Representatives from 60 institutions attended the event, at which CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Bob Schieffer was the keynote speaker.
