Recognition & Awards

Sorry, this page is still under construction. 


However, once we have our resources together, it will be fully functioning! Regardless, we have added as much information to this site as we are able to at this time, so that you will know what to expect in the future - enjoy! 


We work in a community where excellence is continually occurring in classrooms, offices, and meeting rooms. The challenge is being aware of and recognizing all of this wonderful work! In pursuit of this, there are a number of awards that are available to highlight and celebrate yours and others' efforts. This page therefore contains information about some of these awards as well as information for how to submit nominations for them. 

Peer Recognition Awards

There are two awards related to teaching and service that are granted at our college: Peer Recognition of Teaching and Service and the Ruth Bergren Elliott Master Teacher Award.

The Peer Recognition of Teaching and Service are awards that are overseen by the Faculty Development Committee...

The Ruth Berggren Master Teacher Award recognizes each recipient for their teaching effectiveness and support of student learning. The award process involves student government soliciting nominations and a selection committee comprised of a representative from student government board, faculty senate representative group, and the deans to review the nominations and make a recommendation to the VPAA.

EBCD Course Award

Note: The Evidence-Based Course Development Feedback Forms are still being developed. Until these forms are finalized, this award will not be offered. 



Each spring, the Evidence-Based Course Development (EBCD) Course Award is intended to recognize courses that score exceptionally high on EBCD Feedback Forms. These forms are based on evidence-based guidelines adapted from literature and other evidence-based course assessment tools. Courses that score at or above a Level 2 for each guideline on these feedback forms will be recognized for their excellence. Those courses that meet these standards and score at a Level 3 for all core guidelines will be recognized for being "Exemplary." 

To submit your course for review and consideration for this award, contact CREATE! Staff. To access the EBCD Feedback Forms, as well as additional resources to support your evidence-based course development, visit the EBCD Resources page.
