Every year NDSU’s College of Human Sciences and Education holds a celebration of excellence event to recognize the hard work and dedication of our faculty and staff. The celebration held last month shifted to a virtual format to respect physical distancing recommendations.
While this year’s event looked quite a bit different than in years past, it is important not to overlook the accomplishments and advances made by these individuals, especially during these strange and difficult times.
Below is a list of awards received by our talented faculty and staff. Please join us in congratulating them on their achievements.
