The Exemplary Program Award was established in 1991 by the Board of Governors to recognize outstanding community college programs. Criteria for the exemplary program awards are that the program must: have a direct effect on students; have data demonstrating the impact of the program; have the possibility of being replicated elsewhere in the state; respond to an item in the Board of Governors Basic Agenda; and offer support in degree-applicable courses for students needing assistance in basic skill. This is a great opportunity for your college to showcase programs that are exceptional. Watch for next year 's call for Exemplary Programs in February 1999.
