100th Anniversary Campaign Faculty Academic Excellence Awards

Because of the generosity of SRJC 100th Anniversary Campaign donors, grant funding for Faculty Academic Excellence Awards is available for the next two years. In calendar years 2018 and 2019 $18,000 each year will be awarded. Academic Affairs and Academic Senate are collaborating to provide awards for Academic Excellence for the purpose of continuing education and research opportunities for faculty. 

“Every day talented SRJC faculty share knowledge and provide inspiration for our students. SRJC attracts the best and brightest educators – they are innovative, creative, and exceptional teachers because they are lifelong learners who are always growing professionally. We will continue to make it a priority to provide funding for continuing education and research opportunities for faculty that will, in turn, enhance the educational experience for our students.” 100th Anniversary Campaign Brochure
