Chancellor's Award Classified Service

This is not in effect at this time. Please visit this page periodically and watch for updates. In addition, when this is effective again, a notice will be posted in the Bulletin and on the employee portal.

The Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Classified Service was established by SUNY to give system-wide recognition for superior performance and extraordinary achievement by employees in the Classified Service. Employees selected for the awards receive a personal certificate of recognition and a Chancellor's Excellence medallion. Since this is a system-wide recognition program, SUNY Oneonta is only allowed to nominate ONE employee per year. Oneonta awardees will be recognized in the College Bulletin and at the May graduation ceremony.
