Last July, it was announced that fourteen faculty and staff at Stony Brook University received the 2017-2018 State University of New York Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence. SoMAS was honored to have two recipients on the list! The honorees attended the annual Stony Brook University Annual Awards and Recognition Dinner on Thursday November 8, 2018.
Dr. Sharon Pochron received her Chancellor’s Award from Stony Brook University President Sam Stanley. Mark Wiggins received his award from Dr. Larry Swanson at SoMAS.
“Excellence is SUNY’s hallmark,” said State University of New York Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson. “At each of our campuses it is driven by our faculty and staff and their commitment to providing the highest quality environment, where students are inspired and supported to excel as they pursue their passions. I congratulate this year’s recipients, and thank them for their contributions.”
The Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence are presented annually to faculty and staff in seven categories: Faculty Service, Librarianship, Professional Service, Scholarship and Creative Activities, Teaching, Adjunct in Teaching, and Classified Service. The honor provides system-wide recognition for consistently superior professional achievement and encourages the ongoing pursuit of excellence.
