Carroll Community College Project Wins National Award

Westminster, Md., The National Council of Instructional Administrators (NCIA), headquartered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has selected the winners in its 2010 Exemplary Initiatives Competition. NCIA is a professional organization affiliated with the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The awards recognize outstanding ways to enhance the quality of higher education provided at two-year institutions in the United States.

     Carroll Community College received an Honorable Mention Entry for "Engage, Retain and Improve Academic Performance with an Online Tutorial Community."

     Each year, community colleges submit a variety of best practices that correspond to annual
awards categories. This year, NCIA solicited entries in four broad areas: "Professional and Organizational Development"; " Community and Workforce Needs"; "Curricular and Program Innovation"; and "Student Success."  A panel of community college practitioners from across the country evaluated the submissions and selected seven institutions for recognition.

     These institutions will be recognized at the awards luncheon of the International Conference on College Teaching and Learning on April 6, 2011, in Jacksonville, FL.

     "An honorable mention in the NCIA Exemplary Initiatives Recognition Competition  is  no small feat and a very significant achievement. Usually there are several hundred applications. My thanks go to instructor Raza Khan and all who submitted the application. I recognize the continued efforts to make this innovative program incredibly successful," said Dr. James Ball, vice president of Academic and Student Affairs at Carroll Community College.
