The SUNYCUAD Awards for Excellence program rewards the very best efforts of our talented and creative professionals throughout the SUNY system. The Awards for Excellence are presented annually at the educational conference. You must be a member of SUNYCUAD to enter this competition. During the spring semester, juries with professional experience in the specific categories determine the winners. The judging is hosted and coordinated by colleagues of our SUNY institutions. Please note that we are encouraging entrants to refer to outcomes and assessments in their submissions and applicants are required to include electronic images (if relevant to entries) which may be used in a special presentation at the awards ceremony.
