2019 League Excellence Awards: Celebrating Community College Faculty and Staff


The League for Innovation’s Excellence Awards celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff. The awards are open to League Board and Alliance member colleges, and recipients are recognized with activities throughout the League’s annual Innovations Conference. Member institutions determine the criteria and selection of those nominated based on their ideals of faculty and staff excellence. Recipients receive commemorative medallions, award programs, and certificates in recognition of their distinguished status.   

The League looks forward to saluting the 2019 Excellence Award recipients at the 2020 Innovations Conference in Seattle, WA, March 1-4. On Monday, March 2, a special awards reception is planned to congratulate honorees for their exemplary achievements. Award recipients will be photographed during the conference in the League’s exhibit booth. During the keynote address on Wednesday, March 4, recipients will stand to have their specially cast medallions donned as part of the Closing General Session. Recipients will also be acknowledged in a special Excellence Awards Program listing their names, titles, and college affiliations and featuring congratulatory comments from their home colleges.  

League Board and Alliance member colleges are invited to submit the names of those at their institutions who exemplify exceptional teaching and leadership for 2019 League Excellence Awards from September 23 to December 13, 2019. 

To further highlight and congratulate recipients, the League encourages participating institutions to place an ad in the 2019 Excellence Awards Program, which is a commemorative booklet that each recipient member college president receives. The deadline to submit congratulatory ads is also December 13, 2019.
