The Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence seeks to recognize members of the University community who have made invaluable contributions to Syracuse University in two overarching ways—first through commitment to scholarship and research that contributes to new understandings of the world and creative responses to its needs; and second, through advancing the four pillars Chancellor Kent Syverud has identified to foster excellence at Syracuse University. Those four pillars of excellence are providing an outstanding undergraduate experience; empowering research excellence; fostering change and innovation; and positioning Syracuse as the best university in the world for veterans.
The deadline for nominations for the 2022-23 Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence is Friday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m. Nomination requirements are available on the Chancellor’s Citation webpage. Completed nominations may be submitted via email to Faculty Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org, cc: email@example.com).
The four categories of awards are:
- Faculty Excellence and Scholarly Distinction
- Outstanding Contributions to the Student Experience and University Initiatives (faculty, administrative/professional staff and support staff award)
- Award for Excellence in Student Research
- Lifetime Achievement Award
