The College community comes together annually to celebrate student success at the
Honors and Awards Ceremony. This long-standing tradition recognizes academic excellence,
honoring students for outstanding achievement.
This year, due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold the ceremony. Instead, we have included the planned speeches by the Deans and students for each of the Outstanding Student Awards on the website. In addition, President Macpherson introduces the President's Citation Award recipient in her video.
Morgan Hill, President's Citation Award
The President’s Citation is The College at Brockport’s highest award for a graduating senior who has demonstrated
merit (a GPA of at least 3.75), a strong record of co-curricular activities, significant contributions to the College and community, and evidence of professional promise.
School and Departmental Awards
The Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence recognizes model students who have integrated academic excellence with other aspects of their lives, and who may have already received recognition from campus, local, state, national, or international organizations. It is the highest honor bestowed upon a student by SUNY.
