CALL FOR NOMINEES
Commission for Counseling and Psychological Services
The Thomas M. Magoon Innovation Award recognizes innovative programming or service achievements by a university or college counseling agency. This award is given in the spirit of the long-standing CCAPS/ACPA conference presentation entitled Innovations in Counseling, and in particular in honor of the originator and coordinator of that presentation, Dr. Thomas M. Magoon.
The Magoon Innovation Award is given annually to a counseling agency that has provided inventive and original programming or service during the past year. In particular, CCAPS encourages nominations that reflect the inclusion and integration of multicultural competence and values. The recipient will receive a plaque and certificate from CCAPS and will be honored at the ACPA annual convention.
Eligibility: Eligible agencies shall be an organizational unit within a college or university. Nominations must be made by at least one professional staff person of the agency who is an active member of CCAPS.
Nominations for the award are to be in the form of a nominating letter that briefly discusses the unique nature of the program or service, the originality of its design and implementation, and the benefits gained by students and/or the campus community. The nomination letter should also be accompanied by letters of support. No more than three letters of support will be accepted, and supporting documentation of the innovative program or service to be considered may be submitted in lieu of letters of support. The nominated innovative program or service should occur between July 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005. The deadline for submissions is October 3, 2005.
