Awards

Awards

The Academy of Educators Mission includes drawing attention to the great work being done by educators throughout the college in a variety of roles. To this end, the Academy maintains an Awards Committee that designs several awards for presentation at Education Day.  Each year’s awards carry slightly different educational themes according to the needs of the times.

Members are nominated for receiving awards by fellow Academy members.  The Awards Committee then meets to review nominations and determine recipients.

 


The Faculty Educator Award

The Faculty Educator Award goes to members of the Faculty who have demonstrated exemplary educational skills in classrooms, clinics, research and graduate development, continuing education, or mentoring. They have comprehensive knowledge of their subject matter. Furthermore, they motivate learners to grow by modeling a personal interest in developing their own teaching and curriculum. Faculty Educators may contribute to the enhancement of educational activities and the college mission in other ways, such as promoting the development of staff and technicians.
The 2021 Faculty Educator Award goes to Dr. Kathy Lunn! 

 The Educational Innovation and Service Award
The 2020-21 Educational Innovation and Service Award goes to a member or team within the CVM community who showed particular adaptability over the last year. Innovation in the face of challenge may have taken the form of reworking a course, lab, rotation, or other program that is typically performed face to face into an online, hybrid, or otherwise bio-secured activity. The strongest candidates have collaborated with partner programs to coordinate efforts and support each other.

The Gail Druley Award for Non-Faculty Educators
The Druley Award goes to members or teams of the staff, administrative, or student body who have demonstrated exemplary educational skills in classrooms, clinics, research and graduate development, continuing education, or mentoring. They motivate learners to grow by modeling a personal interest in developing their own teaching and supporting the CVM curriculum. The Educator(s) may contribute to the enhancement of educational activities and the college mission in other ways, such as promoting the development of staff and technicians, or engaging their peers in growth activities.
The 2021 Druley Award goes to Kaitlyn Runion!
