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, which determine the criteria and selection of those nominated based on their ideals of faculty and staff excellence.

The League recognizes Excellence Award recipients by featuring them on the League website, in the 2020-2021 League Awards Program, and at the 2021 Innovations Conference, which will be held online in the spring. Each recipient receives a specially cast, pewter medallion and a certificate in recognition of their distinguished status as well as a copy of the Awards Program.

Submit Excellence Award names September 8 - November 6, 2020.

To further highlight and congratulate recipients, the League encourages participating institutions to place an ad in the 2020-2021 League Awards Program, which is a commemorative booklet that each recipient and member college president receives. Submit congratulatory ads October 1 - December 1, 2020. 

League Board and Alliance member colleges are invited to submit the names of those at their institutions who exemplify exceptional teaching and leadership for 2020-2021 Excellence Awards between September 1 and October 30.
