Exemplary Initiatives Competition
The NCIA Awards Committee recognizes an Exemplary Initiative in Student Access, Persistence and Completion. Examples of initiatives in this category include, but are not limited to: recruitment and retention strategies, support for diverse populations, student engagement, increasing completion/graduation/transfer rates, early alert programs, tutoring or mentoring programs, articulation, seamless transitions with P-20 partners, college and career readiness and early transition, and efforts to create an equitable educational environment for all students.
Nominators should submit a cover letter (500 - 1000 words) to the Awards Committee describing in detail the initiative. At a minimum, the nominating letter must address these five questions:
Who was served?
What problem was solved?
How many students were impacted?
What data gives evidence of the success of the initiative?
Is the initiative scalable and/or adaptable by other colleges and if so, how?
The President/Chancellor/CEO of the nominated institution must co-sign the cover letter.
Please also include a separate page with complete contact information for the nominator.
