Please take a few minutes to read about this opportunity to recognize a person or group of employees for their significant contributions.
The IC Choice Award is designed to reward those individuals or a group of employees, who through their own initiative, commitment, support, and/or accomplishment have contributed greatly to the College's success or who have made a difference in the lives of students, employees, or other members of the Ithaca College community.
Do you know someone who has demonstrated these traits? If so, please take a moment to nominate this person or group of employees for an IC Choice Award.
All staff members are eligible to participate, but to be considered for one of these awards, an employee must be nominated by a supervisor, a coworker, a faculty colleague, student, or be self-nominated. The nomination will need to show accomplishment in at least one of the following criteria categories:
- Initiative -- This criterion is used to recognize individual creativity in proposing new or improved work methods, ideas, projects, or approaches that contribute positively to individual or department results.
- Commitment -- This criterion is intended to reward individuals who demonstrate commitment to their department and the College by regularly making a full and positive contribution for a number of years.
- Support -- This criterion recognizes individuals for giving their talents and efforts in support of others in an extraordinary way.
- Accomplishment -- This criterion recognizes individuals for creating and/or producing a substantive project or program for a department or the College.
