2012 Faculty Awards

Faculty Awards 2012

The Academic Committee of the Associated Students and Faculty Government is proud to continue tradition with the 2011-2012 Students Faculty and Staff Recognition Awards.  The purpose of these awards is to give students the opportunity to acknowledge inspiring and exceptional educators, mentors, and friends who go beyond the call of duty. The purpose of this event is to acknowledge these hard working faculty and staff for their continuing efforts to improve students’ learning and involvement at Adams State College.

In realizing that students are very busy, we have simplified the nomination process this year so that more students have the opportunity to nominate a faculty or staff member that has made a difference in their learning and college experience. The nomination process is detailed below.
