PROCESS AND PROCEDURES

Individuals being recognized will be acknowledged by the Board of Governors during its public session and presented with a certificate of achievement and appreciation.

There are numerous opportunities to provide employee, student and community recognition at Pima Community College.  Some of these include:  All College Day; All Faculty Day; Annual Service Award and Recognition ceremonies held at each campus and the DO; the Chancellor’s Report; and @Pima News.  However, the College recognizes the significance for employees, students as well as members of the community, to receive formal recognition by the Board of Governors.

Recipients will be recognized at the April and November Board of Governors meetings.  Each recipient will be publicly recognized and awarded with a certificate of achievement and appreciation.

Employee:  Nominations for recognition must be submitted on the attached form to the Chancellor’s Office one month prior to the Board Meeting.  The nominations will be forwarded to Cabinet for approval. The Chancellor’s Office will invite the employee and his/her family to the Board meeting.
