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.
