Three quarterly winners of the Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Award are selected each year. Awardees each receive a one-year free membership in both NAGT and the Geo2YC Division. Their profile is published in the Division's quarterly newsletter, Geo2YC Foundations, and their supervisors are notified by the committee

During the fourth quarter of each calendar year, one of the three quarterly awardees is selected as the annual awardee (via a poll of the Geo2YC membership). This annual awardee receives a $750 stipend from Pearson Publishing to be used for professional development or classroom support.


Do you work with, or are you, an adjunct or part-time instructor who does great work at a 2yc and deserves to be recognized?

Please fill out the following nomination form to recognize the great work our adjunct faculty do to support student learning at the two-year colleges. The form must be filled out in one session; we ask for brief descriptions of reasons for nominations and contact information at the department and school level to assure full recognition.

Anyone may nominate a faculty member for the award; self-nominations are encouraged.

To qualify, adjuncts must presently be teaching geoscience at a two-year college.
