Have NMC instructors made a difference in your life? Could “dedicated”, “innovative” and “excellent” be used to describe them? If you are looking for a way to recognize the impact an NMC teacher has had on your learning journey, please consider nominating that teacher for the Faculty Excellence awards. Faculty are truly honored to be nominated for these annual awards.
This is the highest teaching honor awarded at NMC and nominations can only come from students.
Nominations are due by March 23 and can be submitted here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BQ5LDX6
Initiated by a contribution from longtime NMC benefactors Harold and Imogene Wise in 1970 and first awarded to a full-time faculty member in 1971, recipients are chosen by a student selection committee, and award criteria includes teaching excellence, rapport with students, innovation in the classroom and a sense of dedication.

March is National Nutrition Month, so it’s a great time to review your diet. We’ll provide weekly information to help you identify small changes you can make to meet your 2018 health goals.
Choosing the right foods can affect your health. Sounds simple, right? So why are chronic conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer on the rise? It may be because of the lack of proper nutrition. Check out the attached infographic to learn more about chronic conditions related to diet.
Try this: Track your meals for a day
- How much salt, sugar and fiber are you eating?
- How many times per day do you eat raw fruit and vegetables?
- How much of each meal was from a box?
- At the end of the day, review what you ate, and choose one thing you can improve.
Making lifestyle changes can take time. Our Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Michigan wellness coordinator recommends picking one change per week over the next month. Take a look at eatright.org and choosemyplate.gov to learn more. You can also email our wellness coordinator, Chris Barr, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kudos to Deb Glauch: Deb hosted our entire class at the Student Health Center. With nurse, Crystal, we toured every aspect of the facility and services. The students gave helpful suggestions for making the center even better. Most had never been there nor knew this was available to them.
Later that day, Deb personally walked one of the students to another office across campus….the student was confused and anxious as to where she needed to be. Such kindness! When our class heard about Deb’s efforts, they were all impressed. It matters to our students that they are truly cared about. Deb is one of our NMC stars.
