Nomination Deadline Extended for the Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship
Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominees for the 2020 Chancellor’s Award for Public Engagement and Scholarship (CAPES). Submissions are welcome through Friday, April 17. The original deadline was March 23 but has been extended due to changes in the University’s operation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Nominations may be submitted using the CAPES Nomination Online Form. Photographs may be included with the nomination form, and additional information or attachments will be accepted.
CAPES was among the awards to be presented at the One University Awards Ceremony on April 17. But the event has been canceled due to observance of COVID-19 guidelines. All award honorees who were to be recognized at the ceremony will instead be announced and celebrated in early May through SU Today and the Syracuse University News website.
Beginning this year, the CAPES award has been updated to recognize two individual students—one undergraduate and one graduate.
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.
