2014-2015 Innovation of the Year Awards
Call for Innovation Nominations!
We are excited to announce the Call for Innovations for the 2014-2015 Innovation of the Year Awards Program. The Maricopa Community Colleges and the League for Innovation in the Community College co-sponsor the annual Innovation of the Year (IOTY) Awards to recognize an employee or teams of employees who have designed and implemented a significant innovation that has had a positive impact on the education of students. One innovation is selected from each College and the District Office. From those winning innovations, a District-wide innovation will be selected to receive the Dr. Paul M. Pair Innovation of the Year Award, which includes $2,000 to be used to further the winning innovation.
All employees are invited to nominate innovative projects and programs that you have worked on over the past year. To get started, review the Innovation of the Year Program information and criterion on the website, http://mcli.maricopa.edu/innovate.
