Seeking Nominations for Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence

By Danielle Boardman, coordinator of Student Life

December 2, 2016

2016 Chancellor's AwardThe Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence recognizes outstanding students who have integrated academic excellence with other aspects of their lives including leadership, community service, the arts, athletics or career achievement. This is also our opportunity to showcase the quality of Empire State College students to the larger SUNY community and identify exceptional students who have graduated or will graduate between June 2016 and May 2017.

Successful candidates will be invited to Saratoga Springs on April 5, 2016 for a luncheon with the president, interviews, photographs, and a tour of the Alumni House. They will then proceed to Albany for a recognition ceremony and reception with SUNY Chancellor Zimpher. 

This is a nomination, not an application, and students must first be nominated by a faculty and/or staff member of the college. The nominator must also provide one of the two required letters of recommendation that must accompany a nomination
