The World Affairs Council will present its third annual Global Educator Award to Dr. Pamela Trotman Reid, president of the University of St. Joseph in West Hartford. 

Dr. Reid will be honored June 6 for her leadership in promoting international education at the university and in the community at large. Under the leadership of Dr. Reid, the university has built educational partnerships with diverse countries from across the globe, increased international recruiting, and fostered cultural exchanges. In addition to her travel to China, Oman, Ghana, and Japan, Dr. Reid has created relationships with universities in the Netherlands and Oman.

More than 250 philanthropists, grantmakers and community leaders recently honored three philanthropic leaders: Andy Eder of Eder Bros. Inc. and the Eder Family Foundation; David Nee of William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund; and Nancy Roberts, recently retired president of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy.

At the Philanthropy Summit, Eder was named the recipient of the 2013 John H. Filer Award for his leadership in promoting private action for the public good.

Nee, executive director of the Hamden-based William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund, was named the recipient of the 2013 Martha S. Newman Award for his dedication to the public sector and a generosity of spirit to others in the philanthropic community.

Roberts, who stepped down from the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy in March after serving the organization for 22 years, was also honored by the organization by creation of a new award, The Nancy Roberts Award for Innovation in Philanthropy. The award will be given to a foundation or other funder each year, beginning at the 2014 Philanthropy Summit.
