2017 Innovation of the Year Awards

Established over 30 years ago, the League’s Innovation of the Year competition was devised as a way to recognize significant innovations at Alliance member colleges. These innovations reflect capstone achievements and the continuing renewal of the spirit of innovation and experimentation upon which the League was founded. The award is designed to recognize faculty, staff, and administrators at member colleges who have created and implemented innovative programs, practices, partnerships, policies, and activities that improve the institution’s ability to serve students and the community. Granting this award provides a venue for showcasing these innovations and the dedicated community college educators who strive for excellence on a daily basis. Click here for more information about the Innovation of the Year Awards, and how your college can participate.

This year, the League is pleased to announce that 54 awards were granted for outstanding innovations that serve community colleges and students. Click on the links below to learn more about each winning innovation.
