Attention 2021 Recipients…

Medallions, certificates, and awards booklets for 2021 recipients will be mailed over the summer. We have contacted the Excellence Awards contacts for direction on when and where to send them so that they can present the awards to their recipients. Please contact your Excellence Awards contact for details.

Excellence Awards

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 show your appreciation for their dedication and contributions by submitting their names for the NISOD Excellence Awards!

The NISOD Excellence Awards were established in 1991 to provide NISOD-member colleges with an opportunity to recognize individuals doing extraordinary work on their campuses. Since then, more than 30,000 recipients have been honored with the Award by their colleges.  

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.

NISOD membership provides an opportunity for HACC to recognize our employees who demonstrate excellence in and out of the classroom. In addition, HACC employees feel honored to be selected by their peers to receive the prestigious NISOD Excellence Award.
—John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., President, Harrisburg Area Community College
