☑ League for Innovation Teaching Excellence

The League is an international organization dedicated to catalyzing the community college movement. It hosts conferences and institutes, develops web resources, conducts research, produces publications and services, and leads projects and initiatives with member colleges, corporate partners and other agencies in a continuing effort to make a positive difference for students and communities.
Every year, community college innovators in teaching and learning are recognized for their efforts at the League for Innovations conference by receiving John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards.
A survey is sent out to all SPC faculty and staff asking for nominations in each of the categories (self-nominations are permitted). A committee of two Deans, one Academic Chair, one Program Director and three faculty members representing CETL screen the nominations and submit their recommendations to senior leadership. One faculty member for each category is selected.
