Faculty Excellence Award

Faculty Excellence Awardees 

Each year, SCC recognizes one full-time faculty, one adjunct faculty, and one adjunct Continuing Education faculty with a Faculty Excellence Award. Nominations are submitted by faculty, classified staff, students, and administrators.

Recipients are recognized at the annual SCC Recognition Awards Ceremony during the spring semester. The adjunct winners each receive $250 and a plaque. The full-time winner receives a plaque and a $2,500 stipend for the lecture to be presented the following fall semester.

Nominations and selection of winners typically occur during March and April. If there is a tie, the Faculty Recognition Committee will vote for final selection. Past recipients are not eligible for re-nomination. Only the full-time recipient will have the opportunity to be nominated for Orange County Teacher of the Year.
