Chancellor's Awards for Excellence
The Chancellor's Awards for Excellence are System-level honors conferred to acknowledge and provide system-wide recognition for consistently superior professional achievement and to encourage the ongoing pursuit of excellence. Through these awards, SUNY publicly proclaims its pride in the accomplishment and personal dedication of its instructional faculty, librarians and professional staff across its campuses. The awards provide SUNY-wide recognition in five categories, Faculty Service, Librarianship, Professional Service, Scholarship and Creative Activities, and Teaching.
The office of Academic Affairs solicits nominations each year for the Excellence Awards. Academic Affairs then collaborates with the nominator to compile a nomination packet for local review and approval before delivering the packet to SUNY System Administration. See the latest call for nominations and deadlines for the Chancellor's Award for Excellence and additional information on the award including submission guidelines.
Appointment for Distinguished Faculty
The rank of SUNY Distinguished Faculty was created by the Board of Trustees in 1963 with the first faculty member promoted to the rank in 1964. Since then 1,277 faculty have been honored in one of four specific categories: Distinguished Professorship, Distinguished Teaching Professorship, Distinguished Service Professorship, and Distinguished Librarian. Distinguished Faculty Rank programs encourage ongoing commitment to excellence, kindle intellectual vibrancy, elevate the standards of instruction and enrich contributions to public service.
