Nominations sought for Excellence in Education

March 12, 2018

Do you know of a faculty or staff member at GRCC who has gone above and beyond their role at the College, in the Community, or in higher education? If so, consider nominating them for the Excellence in Education Award! The Excellence in Education Award was established in 1989 to honor an individual Grand Rapids Community College employee. In 2000, the award was expanded to provide recognition in the form of a staff award, and a separate full-time faculty award. In 2010, an additional award was added for an exemplary adjunct faculty member.

There is a cash award of $1,000 for full-time faculty who have taught at GRCC for at least 5 years, and for adjunct faculty who have taught at least 2 years, with a $750 cash award. Staff members also receive a cash award of $1,000.

Anyone can nominate! Deadline for nominations is May 15, 2018:

Note: the criteria and form for full-time faculty and adjuncts have changed a bit in the past few years, so please be sure to read the guidelines carefully.


Faculty & Adjunct: Call the Provost Office (234-3920) or Karen Walker (234-4236)

Staff: Call Nicole Dekker (234-3848).
