Erie Community College instructor Sherri Kobis, an assistant professor of
Mathematics and Computer Science at North Campus, has been chosen as a 2018
recipient of the prestigious National Institute for Staff and Organizational
Development (NISOD) Excellence Award.
by her peers as an outstanding faculty member and very active in the SUNY Erie
community, Kobis (photo attached) has been instrumental in mathematics
initiatives pertinent to the College’s Teacher Prep Program and its development
as a top STEM education stop for incoming students. These reasons—along with
her work as curriculum committee chair for SUNY Erie’s Mathematics/Computer
Science Department—make her selection for NISOD recognition well earned.
NISOD Excellence Awards were established in 1991 to provide NISOD-member
colleges with a way to recognize individuals doing extraordinary work on their
campuses. More than 25,000 recipients have been recognized since the award’s
inception, and recipients are honored annually at the Excellence Awards Dinner
and Celebration, scheduled this year for May 27 at the Hilton Austin Downtown
in Austin, Texas.
