The Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the Exemplary Program Award. Sponsored annually by the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the Board of Governors established the Exemplary Program Award in 1991 to recognize outstanding community college programs.
The California Community College system is the largest public higher education system in the country, enrolling over 1.8 million students. The theme for the 2023-24 Exemplary Program Award is: Excellence in promotion and advancement of Ethnic Studies. Excellence in this area will be demonstrated by understanding the experiences, challenges, and thought processes of students, and the promotion of efforts to teach ethnic studies centered on African American, Chicano/Latino, Asian American, and Native American courses which enable students to learn about their own stories.
Completed applications must be received by the ASCCC office by 11:59 p.m. on November 5, 2023
