AWARD-WINNING FACULTY: OUTSTANDING FACULTY HONORED

The 2018 New Horizons Conference may be over, but a lasting memory from the event is the recognition of several outstanding faculty members for their superb contributions to the art of teaching.
The Chancellor’s Award for Teaching Excellence (CATE) is presented annually to one teaching faculty member who distinctly represents the teaching excellence found at VCCS colleges.
