Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Award
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 $1000 stipend from McGraw-Hill 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. Former winners of the annual award can not be nominated again.
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.
Composition of the committee
An OAFA selection committee reviews nominees for the award, and selects an awardee during each of the first three quarters of the year. The OAFA selection committee consists of four individuals who serve two-year terms.
The current membership of the committee is:
Michelle Selvans, Clovis Community College 2021-2024 [Chair 2023]
