The GGC Annual Awards, presented at our Convocation ceremony, mirror the four core values of Georgia Gwinnett College. These four values emphasize and encapsulate our vision and mission: Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Creativity. These values inspire and guide our actions, and they are the hallmarks of GGC.
Our faculty award recipients exemplify excellence. Specifically, each of our award recipients demonstrates excellence in teaching, in service, in scholarship and creative activities, and in student engagement. Each faculty award recipient at GGC actively serves our campus and community.
Outstanding Teaching Award
The recipient of this award demonstrates excellence in helping students to become proficient in the subject matter of the discipline. Enabling students to become adept in an academic area prepares them to go on to achieve their goals, both professional and personal, which they set for themselves. The knowledge, skills and understanding that students develop allow them to fulfill their maximum potential and make positive contributions to their own lives as well as their communities and societies.
Outstanding Faculty Service Award
These award recipients stand as a shining examples of the impact that service can have, and they exhibit a level of commitment to service which we should all strive to attain, through service such as participation in committees, leadership roles and development of GGC programming.
Faculty Scholarship and Creative Activities Award
These award recipients demonstrate complex research skills, editorial skills and an exceptional attitude, supporting scholarship and creative activity efforts of the College.
Outstanding Student Engagement Faculty Award
Student Engagement is an integral part of life as Georgia Gwinnett College professor. These award recipients excel at creating hands-on activities and opportunities for our students and engaging our student body.
Outstanding Part-time Teaching Award
In addition to our full time faculty award recipients, GGC also has exceptional part-time faculty members. These award recipients actively serve our campus and community.
The College recognizes the extraordinary staff at GGC. Without each and every one of our staff members, the campus would not be the welcoming home that it is. In recognition of the many contributions made by staff across campus, the Annual Awards Committee selects recipients of the Outstanding Staff Awards. These award recipients are outstanding members of our campus community who truly embody the vision of GGC.
