100th Anniversary Campaign Faculty Academic Excellence Awards

“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
