Faculty of the Year Honorees

Each year, the Professional Development Committee (PDC) calls for full- and part-time faculty of the year nominations. Nominees are invited to submit packets that conform to the Illinois Community College Trustees Association (ICCTA) Outstanding Faculty Member Award guidelines. PDC sub-committees then evaluate those packets and forward the winning names to the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs. The sub-committees also forward the names of one full- and one part-time faculty to the ICCTA as nominees for their Outstanding Faculty Member Award. All honorees are recognized both by the Board of Trustees and at the Faculty Recognition Open House, which is typically held in April.
