CHANDLER, Ariz. (PRWEB) October 19, 2017
In 2012, the League for Innovation in the Community College, a consortium of almost 500 community colleges dedicated to cultivating innovative practice and excellence in community colleges, established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards as a tribute to outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff.
The awards are open to League Board and Alliance member colleges, and recipients are recognized with activities throughout the League’s annual Innovations Conference. Member institutions determine the criteria and selection of those nominated based on their ideals of faculty and staff excellence. Recipients receive commemorative medallions, award programs, and certificates in recognition of their distinguished status.
The League looks forward to saluting the 2017 John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards recipients at the 2018 Innovations Conference in National Harbor, MD, March 8-21. On Monday, March 19, a special Excellence Awards Reception is planned to congratulate honorees for their exemplary achievements. During the keynote address by John Roueche on Wednesday, March 21, recipients will stand to have their specially cast medallions donned as part of the Closing Session. Recipients will also be acknowledged in a special Excellence Awards Program listing their names, titles, and college affiliations and featuring congratulatory comments from their home colleges.
League Board and Alliance member colleges are invited to submit the names of those at their institutions who exemplify exceptional teaching and leadership for 2017 John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards through December 15, 2017.
To further highlight and congratulate recipients, the League encourages participating institutions to place an ad in the 2017 commemorative Excellence Awards program. The deadline to submit congratulatory ads is January 16, 2018.
