Nomination:  Any faculty member, administrator/staff member, or student from the College community may nominate an individual for an excellence award.  It is the nominator’s responsibility to complete and submit the nomination, although a student nominator may request that this responsibility be given to a faculty member or administrator/staff member. Self-nominations are not eligible.
