Grants and Awards

Jamieson Award

This award will be presented to a current or past NCCC faculty member who best exemplifies those traits exhibited by Dr. Jamieson. Other colleagues described Carol as:

A veteran academician with in-depth historical perspective and acute foresight. Faculty from the Humanities Division complimented Carol's commitment, availability, loyalty, and advocacy. Peers outside the Division praised Carol's breadth of interest in the College-wide issues, her can-do attitude, her ever-present resilience, and her willingness to serve as a mentor to many.

The Advisory Board for the V. James Renda Faculty Resource Center for Academic Excellence will review nominations and select a faculty member who best represents the commitment to education that Carol personified during her tenure at NCCC.
