Awards and Recognition

Recognizing Civic Leadership and Action on our community colleges campuses and communities.
TDC annually recognizes exceptional work of students and faculty who have advanced the work of democracy on their campuses and in their communities. We have recently created a National Awards and Recognition Committee composed of members of our National Leadership Team tasked with creating, nominating, awarding, and recognizing community college campuses, students, faculty, staff, and administration who advance democracy and civic engagement on our campuses and in our communities. Stay tuned as this is a valuable work in progress!
