Celebrating Recipients

Since 1991, NISOD has been honored to recognize community and technical college faculty, administrators, and staff for their achievements and contributions to their institutions. The work of these men and women includes not only what they do for their campuses, but what they do for students and the communities in which they live and work. NISOD celebrates recipients in the following ways.

The specially cast, pewter medallions are hung on a burnt-orange ribbon and provided to each recipient.

Each Excellence Award recipient’s name, title, and college are listed in the Excellence Awards Booklet.

Recipients are asked to submit a statement that describes what inspires and motivates them in their work; what strategies help drive their success; and/or what words of wisdom they might pass on to others. In addition, recipients can submit a photo of themselves in their work environment. These items are displayed on our website as well as featured throughout their year on our social media channels.

Each Excellence Award recipient receives a personalized Excellence Awards Certificate suitable for framing.

Each spring during its signature annual conference, NISOD hosts one of the most prestigious and well-attended events for community and technical college educators. This is an emotional celebration that Excellence Award recipients and their colleagues and families will not want to miss!

Excellence Award recipients receive a special invitation to author an Innovation Abstracts, NISOD’s flagship teaching and learning publication written by and for community and technical college practitioners.
