Submitted on: 04-15-2010

Aims Community College Math Instructor Art Terrazas recently attended the National Association for Developmental Education's national convention to receive the NADE Adjunct Faculty Scholarship award. Terrazas has a strong history of involvement with the state CoADE organization, having served on the executive committee for five years, two terms as president, two terms as treasurer, and as the recipient of numerous awards including Adjunct Faculty of the Year and a Lifetime Achievement Award for his many years of commitment to developmental education. During the national convention, Terrazas also took the opportunity to shadow the current conference committee in preparation for co-chairing the NADE 2013 conference scheduled to take place in Denver. The event will bring more than 1,500 developmental educators from across the country. "It's important for people to understand that developmental education focuses on providing educational opportunity for all individuals. It is a comprehensive process that focuses on the intellectual, social and emotional growth and development of students that includes, but is not limited to tutoring, personal career counseling, academic advisement and coursework," Terrazas said. "I am honored to have received the award, and I'm very excited to serve as co-chair for the upcoming national conference."
