Full-Time Faculty Award Nomination Process

If you wish to nominate one of your colleagues for the Excellence in Education Faculty Award for full-time faculty, you must follow the procedures outlined below.  The forms for nomination can be found on the right sidebar of this page in both PDF format and Word format.  

  • Nominate a colleague who has been employed for at least five (5) years at GRCC and has not received the award previously.

  • Do not tell the nominee they are being nominated.  This is to be kept confidential from the nominee.

  • The nominee must be an employee in good standing.

  • Obtain 12 signatures:  4 within the department; 4 outside of the nominee’s department; 4 others which can include retired GRCC employees or students. (Endorsers may sign only one petition per academic year, members of the award selection committee are not eligible to sign any petition.  A person who writes a narrative for a nominee is not eligible to sign this document.)

  • The nominator will write a narrative on the official nomination form describing how the nominee exemplifies the GRCC Values, speaking to the nominee’s impact across the college (not just in his/her own area).  Limit the narrative to two pages.

  • The nominator will find one faculty member or student and one additional GRCC employee to write a supporting narrative on the official narrative form describing how the nominee meets the award criteria; limit each narrative to two pages.

  • A selection committee, chaired by the Executive Director of Organizational Learning, with representatives from CEBA, ESP, Campus Police and Meet & Confer will review the submitted nominations and select a recipient based on the GRCC Values.

  • Faculty nominations are due into the Provost’s Office (First Floor - Main Building) by NOON Friday, May 30, 2014.
