NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence

The role of administrative professional in an honors office is essential for handling both day-to-day operations and long-term projects. Jacks and Janes of all trades, whether it be refilling the Keurig, assisting their director with assembling a timeline, consoling a discouraged student, or making the entire office laugh in a meeting--administrative assistants do it all.

Many administrative coordinators and assistants have dedicated decades of hard work and commitment to ensure the standard of honors education is carried on within their own respective programs—and have helped to maintain a great relationship among NCHC institutions. We are pleased to offer member institutions the opportunity to ‘honor’ the dedication, hard work, and commitment of these individuals.

Every candidate submitted will receive:

  • Recognition on our website during the week of Administrative Professional's Day (April 25th, 2018)
  • A certificate from the NCHC office thanking them for their work

The 2018 NCHC Award for Administrative Excellence recipient will receive an award at the Annual Conference in Boston this November; and will also be recognized within this year's conference program, to thank them for their service and commitment to honors.

2018 Nominations are now closed. Winner will be announced April 25, 2018.
