The college's Outreach Excellence award recognizes faculty and staff whose efforts to impact the community go above and beyond the day-to-day responsibilities of their job. Outreach includes activities such as training K-12 teachers, working with high school students, developing curricula for public education, producing events for the public, or other activities that engage our community.
