Do you know awesome faculty, administrators, and staff—the ones who are a testament to the important work done on your campus every day? Don’t miss this opportunity to let the outstanding people on your campus know that their dedication and contributions are recognized and appreciated! The NISOD Excellence Awards, the most coveted award among community and technical college educators, were created to honor such individuals, recognizing more than 25,000 recipients since their inception.
In 1989, in connection with a University of Texas national study of teaching excellence, NISOD hosted its first ceremony honoring and naming the individuals featured in the study as recipients of the NISOD Excellence Awards. The response to that ceremony was so positive that we decided to begin what has become the largest and most elegant and inspiring gathering that recognizes the contributions and achievements of community and technical college faculty, administrators, and staff. Today, using their own criteria, NISOD Member Colleges submit the names of men and women each year who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and contribution to their students and colleagues.
NOTE: NISOD will provide college CEOs who submit Excellence Awards recipient names with a complimentary conference registration to facilitate their participation in the Excellence Awards Dinner and Celebration. (At least one Excellence Awards recipient must also be registered to attend the conference.)
(Please note that submitted names must be approved by the college's CEO.)
