Call for nominations for the Chancellor’s Citations for Excellence
The Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence seeks to recognize enactment of Education for the World—in the World, through which we prepare students for the world by embedding their learning in the midst of community and the pressing issues of the day as well as in their academic disciplines. We seek to recognize faculty and staff who are collaborators in work of intellectual richness that has had impact or has the potential for impact and synergy both within the University and outside in partnership with others. Of equal importance is work that demonstrates Syracuse University’s commitment to scholarly discovery and advancement—the innovative thinking and experimentation that contribute to new understandings of our world and creative responses to its problems.
You are invited to write a letter of nomination for a colleague that includes a 2-3 page letter detailing the work or accomplishments you consider to be citation-worthy. Along with your letter, please submit a short CV or bio for your nominee (or the url for such) and any concise materials that display or exemplify the nominee’s exemplary work.
Please send your nomination to chair of the Chancellor’s Citation Selection Committee, c/o Bronwyn Adam at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, Nov. 5.
Selection and Recognition
As part of the selection process, the committee may consult with nominators or others designated as able to speak to the candidate’s excellence and suitability for recognition to better understand the nature of the nominee’s work.
The Chancellor’s Citation Selection Committee will complete its work and make its recommendations to me late in December. Citation winners will be notified by letter no later than Jan. 18, 2013. Recipients of the Chancellor’s Citations for Excellence are honored at a special event and receive an original work of art by a member of the Syracuse University faculty.
