Nominations Sought for Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship
[Update (March 7, 2017): The deadline for nominations for the 2017 Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship has been extended to Friday, March 24.]
Members of the Syracuse University campus community are invited to submit nominations for the 2017 Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship. The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 10.
The Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship (CAPES) is one of the awards that will be presented at the One University Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 25. The CAPES award has been updated this year to recognize two individual students, one undergraduate and one graduate.
The two categories of the award are the following: One undergraduate and one graduate who have significantly engaged in their community as part of a dynamic learning experience. Syracuse University embraces this commitment to promote positive change that simultaneously advances knowledge and meets real-world needs, magnifying impact and interconnectedness.
First presented in 1992, the award grew out of an interest among students working with Syracuse University Students for the United Way to honor fellow students for their contributions to the community. The Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship furthers that objective.
Hardcopy forms may be obtained at and submitted to the Mary Ann Shaw Center for Public and Community Service at 237 Schine Center. Nominations must be limited to no more than two (2) typed double-spaced pages, or to the space on the nomination form. Please label each page with the nominee’s name. Photographs may be included with the nomination form, and additional information or attachments will be accepted.
