In recognition of the long tradition of excellence in community college teaching and leadership, the League for Innovation in Community Colleges established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards in 2012 (formerly NISOD). These awards are open to League Alliance member institutions to celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff.

John E. and Suanne D. Roueche, leaders in the community college field and early proponents of the idea that teachers have major responsibility for how well students perform in the classroom, have been partners and friends of the League for Innovation in the Community College for over thirty-five years. What began as a working relationship with the founders of the League has evolved into a full-fledged partnership through collaborative efforts on projects of mutual interest and national concern.
