The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) is honoring Professor Malkiel Choseed. He will receive the inaugural Dale P. Parnell Distinguished Faculty award at the AACC’s annual convention. Parnell is the former President and CEO of AACC. The award was created in his memory to recognize individuals who make a difference in the classroom. “I am honored to have been nominated for this award. It is humbling to know that my work helping students succeed has been deemed worthy of this recognition,” Choseed said.
Professor Choseed began working at Onondaga Community College in 2005. He teaches Writing and is Coordinator of the Writing Program in the English/Reading/Communication major. He played a central role in efforts which focus on underserved students including the development and implementation of the Accelerated Learning Program, the development of a Writing and Reading in the Discipline course pairing, and the rewriting of course outlines, learning outcomes and course schedules to prioritize revision. “There is almost no better feeling than seeing students not only succeed on a given assignment but begin to recognize that they are capable of succeeding in our class and beyond. I want to help people whether it’s an individual in the classroom, through changes to a program or in the way we do things here. If it can help student’s I want to be a part of it.”
Congratulations to Malkiel Choseed!
