League Excellence Award FAQ

What are the Excellence Awards?

The League's Excellence Awards recognize outstanding faculty, staff, and leaders in the community college field who have made a significant difference in the lives of students and in the communities their colleges serve. Participation in these awards is a League membership benefit.

How are individuals selected for an Excellence Award?

Each college/district has its own selection criteria. Please refer to the League Excellence Awards contact at your institution for information.

Who can submit Excellence Award recipient names?

The designated Excellence Awards contact at each League Board and Alliance institution is responsible for administering this award and submitting names. Only this individual has access to the submission portal.

I am the designated Excellence Awards contact. How do I submit the names of Excellence Award recipients from my institution?

When the awards are open, designated awards contacts will receive email communications with submission instructions.

What is the deadline for the award contact to submit recipient names?

The 2023-2024 League Excellence Awards are open September 1-December 1, 2023.

If I am planning to attend the Innovations Conference, do I have to register?

Yes. Anyone attending the conference is required to register and pay the conference registration fee. League member institutions qualify for a 20% registration discount when at least five (5) participants from the same member institution are registered in a single transaction. Register before the early registration deadline, and there are significant savings to be had. (Please note: Neither honoraria nor expenses are provided to award recipients.)

If I am unable to attend the Innovations Conference, do I still qualify to receive my award?

Yes. Innovations Conference attendance is optional, although we encourage you to come and celebrate your achievement. If you are unable to attend, your medallion, certificate, and League Awards Program will be mailed to your college president/chancellor for distribution after the conference.

Our college would like to place a congratulatory ad in the League Awards Program. How do we do this?

Participating colleges and systems are encouraged to submit an ad for inclusion in the League Awards Program. The purpose of the ads is to highlight and congratulate Excellence Award and Innovation of the Year Award recipients from your college, and to bring attention to League Board and Alliance member institutions. Submissions may include photos of recipients and/or a special congratulatory message.
