Nominate an Outstanding Instructor

Published: December 6, 2023

Do you know a College of Western Idaho (CWI) faculty member who has gone above and beyond and made a difference in your educational career? Nominate them for the College’s Faculty of Distinction and Idaho GEM Awards.

Each year, nomination forms are sent to CWI faculty and students to nominate instructors for the Idaho GEM Awards and our CWI Faculty of Distinction. If you have an instructor who has made a difference in your educational journey through their care, exemplary teaching style, creativity, and passion share your thoughts with a nomination.

Last year, Professor of Psychology, Heather Schoenherr, was awarded a GEM Award for Social and Behavioral Ways of Knowing. Nominations and comments from students played a big role in helping her win.
