Winners of 2018 NCEES Surveying Education Award announced

University of Akron receives $25,000 grand prize

NCEES is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 NCEES Surveying Education Award. This annual award recognizes surveying programs that best reflect the organization’s mission to advance licensure for surveyors in order to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

NCEES awarded the University of Akron’s Surveying and Mapping program the $25,000 grand prize. Six additional prizes were awarded to qualifying programs to assist with each program’s continued efforts to promote the importance and value of surveying licensure. The award jury considered criteria such as student outcomes and involvement, outreach and recruitment, and the promotion of licensure. The award jury met June 28, 2018, in Clemson, South Carolina, to select the winners.

NCEES Surveying Education Award juror Glen Thurow, P.S, stated, “The University of Akron’s three-pronged approach to program growth is to invest in technology, scholarship support, and strategic marketing. This is an excellent example of how to position an institution for the future.”

The jury selected six programs to receive the following awards:

$15,000 winners :  Idaho State University; Oregon Institute of Technology; University of Maine

 $10,000 winners: Central New Mexico Community College; East Tennessee State University; Troy University

More information about the 2019 NCEES Surveying Education Award cycle will be posted at ncees.org/surveyingaward when available.
