Excellence winner with family


Grand Rapids Community College faculty are great teachers who do great work every day to enhance student learning and success. That hard work is recognized in several ways, including ...

The Excellence in Education Awards

  • These annual awards recognize faculty and staff who have made significant contributions to the College, higher education and the community.

Excellence in Teaching with Technology Award

  • First awarded in 2012, this special recognition was designed to highlight a faculty member who exhibits excellence in their use of instructional technologies to enhance their teaching and improve student success.


  • Applegrams provide a way for students to show their appreciation for one of their teachers.  

Information on each of these can be found by clicking the links on the left.  

In the Center for Teaching Excellence we also believe it is important to recognize the day-to-day accomplishments and work of our faculty as well. In order to honor that, we have created a Faculty Voices webpage that contains stories about faculty who have successfully implemented innovative pedagogies in their classrooms.
