Tribal and Community College faculty member Roxanne DeLille was selected by the students, faculty, administration, and staff of the college to receive the 2007-2008 Outstanding Educator Award. As the recipient of this campus award, DeLille is now nominated for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees’ Award for Excellence in Teaching.

DeLille teaches Speech Communication and American Indian Studies courses at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC in Cloquet, MN). She has taught at the college since 1998, and some of the courses include Interpersonal Communication, Intercultural Communication, Anishinaabeg of Lake Superior, Contemporary Indian Concerns, and Mass Media. DeLille completed the Luoma Leadership Academy and is active in campus and community events. She is a resident of Duluth and is a member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Ojibwe.

The balloting process for the award was open to all students and employees at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. All full-time faculty members were eligible for the award.

To be recognized as a Board of Trustees’ Outstanding Educator, faculty members must demonstrate consistently exemplary teaching and provide evidence of their contributions to student learning. Outstanding Educators are expected to demonstrate expertise in their subject areas, as well as achievement and skill in areas demonstrably related to teaching, such as advising, mentoring, pedagogical development, and service to students, the college or university, and to the system.

All Outstanding Educators receive a framed certificate and silver medallion suitable for wearing with academic regalia. All were invited to an awards event in April at which Outstanding Educators and Board of Trustees’ Awardees for Teaching Excellence were honored.
