Innovative Program Award
Share |

The Innovative Program Award is presented annually by NODA to a program or unique approach to a challenging situation and/or specific campus concern or need. It is a goal of NODA to recognize leaders and generate new knowledge within the field of orientation, transition, and retention. This award seeks to recognize innovative and effective approaches that help university officials meet the changing needs on college and university campuses. It is also an opportunity to highlight good administrative and other practices and share different approaches to meeting student needs with colleagues at other institutions. This award is granted at both the regional and national level. Each region will select a recipient for the regional award. These winners will be automatically considered for the national level.

An innovative program should:

  • encourage diverse and/or multiple subgroups to participate;
  • address a demonstrated need on campus;
  • contain an evaluation/assessment component;
  • are adaptable to other institutions;
  • demonstrate financial creativity or cost effectiveness;
  • involve collaboration with other college or university departments; and 
  • enhance student learning.
