Deadline for Submission: Nomination Memo - Late December. Final Dossier - Early February
Eligibility: Nominations for the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Professional Service are drawn from individuals presently serving in full-time, professional service (not classified service) capacities in which more than 50 percent of their assignment is in non-teaching services. Specific categories encompassed by this award are: academic administration, business affairs, student affairs, institutional support technologies, instructional and research support technologies, and directors of the campus libraries. Nominees must have completed at least three years of continuous, full-time, professional service (not classified service) in the position for which they are nominated.
Recipients of an Excellence Award may not, at any time, be re-nominated for an award in the same category; and they may not be nominated for another Excellence Award in any other category within a 10-year period. Posthumous nominations are ineligible. Other exclusions can be found in the Call for Nominations.
Specifics: Nominees for this award must transcend the normal definition of excellence by repeatedly seeking to improve themselves, their campuses, and ultimately, the State University. At all position levels, nominees shall be those individuals who can serve as professional role models for a University system in the pursuit of excellence. A summary of accomplishments (limited to a maximum of 5 pages) and a curriculum vitae (CV) are required for nominations.
