Nature of the Award
The Professor of the Year Award was established in 1975 and is given annually to honor excellence in teaching. The award is based on excellence in the classroom; impact on students, both in and out of class; contributions to the department, the college, and the profession; contributions to curriculum development; and community service.

The recipient of the Professor of the Year Award:

  1. serves as grand marshal for Moraine Valley's graduation ceremony,

  2. receives a $1,000 stipend from the college,

  3. is presented a framed certificate and formally recognized at the annual Staff Recognition Dinner (held in late spring),

  4. is nominated by the college for annual faculty recognition awards (e.g., Illinois Community College Trustees Association, Consortium for Community College Development, the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence Award, etc.), and

  5. is featured in Applause! Applause! (a publication of Moraine Valley that presents annual employee award recipients).

Nomination Process
The nomination process generally begins in late fall and ends in late March of the following spring term.

  1. Official Student Nomination forms are distributed college-wide for use in nominating a candidate for the award.

  2. Additional nomination forms are issued to full-time faculty members, applicable academic deans, and the Executive Leadership Team for use in nominating a candidate for the award.

  3. After the nomination process is closed, a first-level screening is conducted to advance candidates (according to criteria) to the Faculty Development Committee for a second screening.

  4. Given appropriate criteria, members of the Faculty Development Committee select three finalists to be placed on a ballot.

  5. Official ballots are issued to all full-time faculty members, applicable academic deans, and the Executive Leadership Team.
