The John Carroll award is conferred upon Georgetown alumni whose achievements and record of service exemplify the ideals and traditions of Georgetown and its founder. These awardees have distinguished themselves in their communities and through outstanding service to Georgetown. The John Carroll Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Georgetown University Alumni Association.
This year, esteemed SFS professor and alumnus Anthony Clark Arend (SFS’80), was one of the recipients of the John Carroll award, given out at John Carroll Weekend in Austin, Texas. Arend has contributed his expertise in the areas of international law, international relations, international legal philosophy, and constitutional law to the Georgetown learning community for nearly three decades. He currently serves as Senior Associate Dean for Graduate and Faculty Affairs in SFS and Director of the Master of Science in Foreign Service program. Along with Professor Christopher C. Joyner, Dr. Arend founded the Institute for International Law & Politics at Georgetown and served as its co-director from 2003-2008. A loyal son of Georgetown, he began his time on The Hilltop as a student in the School of Foreign Service as well.
SFS is grateful for Dr. Arend’s service to Georgetown and the SFS. “Tony is the heart and soul of SFS and has been for more than 30 years. I could not think of a more deserving John Carroll award winner,” says Dean Joel Hellman. The SFS community agrees: the outpouring of affection and accolades from Arend’s former students, colleagues and friends has been notable.
