Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence Nomination Deadline Extended to Jan. 6, 2022
The deadline for nominations for the 2021-22 Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence has been extended to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022 to give the campus community sufficient time to nominate individuals who have made a significant impact on the University.
Full guidelines for the Chancellor’s Citation awards and nomination requirements are available on the Chancellor’s Citation webpage. Completed nominations may be submitted via email to Ramesh Raina (firstname.lastname@example.org, cc: email@example.com).
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: (i) providing an outstanding undergraduate experience; (ii) empowering research excellence; (iii) fostering change and innovation; and (iv) positioning Syracuse as the best university in the world for veterans.
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 Graduate and Undergraduate Student Research
- Lifetime Achievement Award
Recipients of the Chancellor’s Citations for Excellence are honored at the One University Awards Ceremony, which will be held in April 2022. Past awardees can be found in the University Library Archives.
