SUNY Erie instructor earns 2018 NISOD recognition

Article by: Michael Farrell

BUFFALO—SUNY 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. 

Known 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. 

The 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.

Since 1946, SUNY Erie Community College has met the needs of a diverse student body while contributing to the economic vitality of Western New York. As a member of the state’s SUNY system, the three-campus college provides flexible, affordable and accessible educational programs in an accommodating academic environment. Equipped with the knowledge of these programs, SUNY Erie’s faculty, staff and students strive to enrich their host communities through skill, service and partnership.
