The center is sponsoring a monthly contest in which one faculty member and one student will be recognized as international scholars. To nominate someone who has made a global contribution through a cross-cultural experience, complete the application at
http://cge.cua.edu/forms/international%20scholar%20application.doc and send it to cua-cge@cua.edu. Winners will be featured on the center's Web site as CUA’s International Scholars of the Month.

Life Insurance Benefit Enhancement for 2008
The Office of Human Resources announces that along with the new year comes the enhanced term life insurance benefit for eligible employees. As of January 2008, the term life insurance benefit will continue to match each employee’s annual salary even if the salary amount is greater than $50,000.  As before, this benefit will be paid for by CUA.  In accordance with IRS tax code 79, eligible employees who earn more than $50,000 and have term life insurance matching their annual salaries will see that the additional term life insurance premium value (above $50,000) will be added to their gross wages as imputed income. The value of the imputed income is subject to regular income tax withholding rules. For more information, please contact Terry Fletcher at 202-319-5262 or fletchet@cua.edu.
