Excellence Awards Dinner and Celebration (Cancelled for 2020)

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!

Innovation Abstracts

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.

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 is honored to be able to recognize and celebrate such outstanding individuals.
