Call for Nominations for the NISOD Award

Each year the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) at the University of Texas at Austin honors individuals who have made significant contributions to their colleges. Community colleges across the country nominate those people who have, in some way, gone beyond their job responsibilities to make their campuses better places to learn and to work. Some examples of "above and beyond" could include new innovative teaching methods or programs that encourage new learning in MCC students, perhaps a high level of involvement with the MCC community, or taking on additional departmental responsibilities, etc. These are just examples and do not reflect the only criteria upon which nominees will be evaluated.

The deadline for submitting packets is Friday, Nov. 9th by 12 P.M. to Bonnie Connell, 8-516.
Nomination packets should include, per the web site, <<>>:

* Name, rank/title of the individual being nominated
* Annual Faculty Activity Reports for the three most recent years of service to the College
* A minimum of two letters of support. These support letters can be from department chairs, deans, colleagues, and/or students.

* Nominators must submit 8 copies of the nomination packet

The NISOD award is not limited to teaching faculty.  Faculty must have a minimum of three years service to the College. This award is designed for newer faculty with 10 years experience or less.

Materials are due by Friday, November 9, 2007 at 12:00 P.M.
