The NTC Foundation is pleased to announce nominations for the 2023 Robert C. Altman Educational Excellence Award are now being accepted.

First awarded in 1989, the Robert C. Altman Educational Excellence Award is presented annually to an NTC faculty member who has been singled out by students and peers as an outstanding educator and innovative facilitator of learning.  This award, administered by the NTC Foundation, was established by a donor to honor a former President of the Wisconsin Valley Trust Company and past member of the NTC Foundation Board of Directors.  Nominees are selected on criteria that illustrate facilitation of learning and active involvement outside the classroom. This year’s nomination also includes a question focused on the individual’s ability to serve students during the pandemic.

Current NTC employees or students can nominate a deserving full-time or adjunct faculty member by completing the nomination form (Word | PDF). Submit by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 31, 2023. The recipient will be recognized during spring commencement activities.

Questions can be directed to Sheila Rossmiller, Director of Annual Giving and Scholarships at or 715.803.1302.

Thank you for your nominations and helping us recognize our outstanding NTC faculty!
