Nominations sought for Staff and Faculty Appreciation Awards

     It is time to consider full-time instructors and librarians for the NIC Foundation Faculty Achievement Award and part-time faculty for the Adjunct Faculty Achievement Award.
     The full-time awards given to a faculty member or librarian may vary from $500 to $1,500. Instructors must be full-time and have been involved in NIC classroom instruction for four or more years. The award is given based upon classroom effectiveness, dependability in meeting contractual obligations, and professional growth. For librarians, the criteria include exemplary library service to students and the NIC campus. Click here for more information on the Full-time Faculty Award
     The adjunct award is $500 for one faculty member. Adjunct instructors qualify for the award during their fifth consecutive semester (including summer) and must teach at least six semester credits or the equivalent. Adjunct faculty will be judged on teaching effectiveness and contributions to the community. Click here for more information on the Adjunct Faculty Award.
     All awards will be announced at the Commencement Breakfast on May 11. Please make sure nomination letters are submitted to the Vice President for Instruction's Office (Molstead Library 252) no later than Friday, April 6. If you have any questions, call Cheri Beard at (208) 769-3305.
     It's that time of year again when we have the opportunity to nominate our outstanding coworkers for the Staff Appreciation Awards
     The nomination process will be the same but, based on feedback we received following last year's nomination process, we've increased the character limit of the nomination form, allowing you to include more detail. The form still has only one box for your nomination submission. Each nomination must be between 750 and 2500 characters and should explain how the nominee fulfills the award criteria. Each of the criteria is weighted at 25 percent.
     The winners will be determined by a committee representative of all areas of NIC. You can read the details of the process on the Staff Appreciation Awards Nomination page. You'll also find all the details on each award, the criteria, and the links to the nomination forms.
     Nominations are open NOW and will remain open until NOON on Friday, April 6. If you have any questions on the process, please email Cathy Sparks, Staff Assembly Vice Chair.
