Innovation of the Year

2014 Innovation of the Year Award Winner

L-R: Julie Grahl, Libby Vagnoni, JJ McEachern, Pat Nash, Mallory Benz

Each year, the League for Innovation sponsors the Innovation of the Year to recognize best practices among the League colleges. CPCC’s Employee Recognition Committee selects our local winner, and the CPCC Foundation contributes $1,000 to support the winning program or department.

This year, the Committee chose to recognize “The BIG Picture: Experiencing Student Success.” Please congratulate Julie Grahl, Mallory Benz, Pat Nash, Libby Vagnoni, and JJ McEachern.

The BIG Picture: Experience Student Success” was part of CPCC’s Learning College Showcase. During the “BIG Picture,” a movie-themed event, CPCC staff and faculty had the opportunity to visit with Student Services areas to learn how each area helps students be successful at CPCC. Some of the movies selected by various Student Services departments included “Back to School” by Admissions and Registration, Veterans Affairs selected “Patton,” ESS directors chose “The Incredibles,” and the Graduation Office selected “Field of Dreams,”

The main purpose of the “The BIG Picture” event was to engage the entire College community and increase employees’ knowledge of all of CPCC’s student success initiatives. Knowing more about the many services at the College enables attendees to deliver better quality customer service to our students and the community.
