Such excellence is demonstrated through an inclusive approach to educational practices of teaching, research, and/or leadership. Sites of practice include the classroom, the campus, and the community, whether local or global. The President Shirley M. Collado Faculty Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Ithaca College Community is intended to support the professional development of the chosen faculty member to further enhance their capacity for equitable and inclusive leadership in all relevant academic and community areas. This award will be made through the Center for Faculty Excellence.
