Formal Recognition Opportunities Available in Spring

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 

A Message from Samuel Dunham, Interim Director, Employee Development

As we continue to serve our students, institution and community, it becomes clearer that we work with extraordinary colleagues at the College. Though it is great to identify employees’ superb work, supervisors can take even more proactive steps to ensure that our colleagues are recognized.

As you plan for ways to recognize your team members this upcoming spring, the Employee Development team would like to share the two formal recognition opportunities that will be available. Please encourage your team members to nominate others and apply for these recognition opportunities themselves.

Faculty Association Awards for Excellence in Teaching, Counseling, and Librarianship (FAAETCL)

The purpose of the Faculty Association Awards for Excellence in Teaching, Counseling and Librarianship is to recognize five faculty members who have demonstrated effective and innovative teaching methods and a continuing commitment to student success through student engagement both inside and outside the classroom.

Nomination process timeline: January – March 2022

Endowed Chairs for Learning Leadership

The Endowed Chairs for Learning Leadership program has been established to recognize and promote academic excellence at Valencia College. The program honors outstanding members of the Valencia teaching faculty and provides resources needed for advancement of instruction at Valencia.

Application process timeline: March – April 2022

Specific open and close dates will be shared for these programs in January 2022. For questions about either of these programs, please reach out to the Employee Development team at
