The Office of the President presents awards each year to recognize faculty excellence. Five awards are offered annually. In order to be eligible for these awards, a candidate must be a full-time faculty member who has completed at least one year of employment at American International College (AIC) and have been full-time during the 2016-2017 academic year. Each year, up to five President’s Faculty Excellence Awards will be given to faculty.
The foremost criterion for the President’s Faculty Excellence Award is overall excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service appropriate to their appointment. Nominees must demonstrate excellence in the first three areas below:
Any faculty, administrator, student, alumnus, or alumna from the college community may nominate an individual for the President’s Faculty Excellence Award. It is the nominator’s responsibility to complete and submit the nomination, although a student nominator may request that this responsibility be given to a faculty member or administrator. Self-nominations are not eligible.
AIC is proud to recognize Ellen Furman, PhD, RN and John Rogers, PhD as its President’s Faculty Excellence Awards recipients for 2017. The awards, given annually for overall excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service, exemplify AIC’s standing as a leader in higher education in the Springfield, Massachusetts area.
Thanks to both of this year’s recipients for their dedication to AIC, our students, and our community!
