Held during NISOD’s annual conference, Excellence Awards recipients are recognized and honored during the Excellence Awards Dinner and Celebration, 6:30 – 10:00 p.m., Sunday, May 27, 2018, at the Hilton Austin Downtown. All Excellence Award recipients and their presidents receive one Dinner and Celebration ticket in their registration packet. All other conference participants must purchase a ticket in order to attend the Dinner and Celebration.

Excellence Awards recipients experience the red carpet treatment as they arrive to receive their medallions. Open to all registered conference participants, this enthusiastic and inspiring annual event brings together more than 1,200 individuals. Join the fun as we celebrate the extraordinary work of faculty, administrators, and staff whose service to their students, colleagues, and community deserve our special recognition.

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 as long as at least one 2018 Excellence Awards recipient has registered and paid the registration fee.

Throughout the Dinner and Celebration, Excellence Awards recipients enjoy the company of family and colleagues. During dinner, all recipients are asked to stand and have their medallions formally hung around their necks, an emotional experience that Excellence Awards recipients, their colleagues and families, and other conference participants will not want to miss!
