Annual Recognition Luncheon

Sponsored Program Recognition Luncheon

Sponsored Program
Recognition Luncheon


December 12, 2017

by invitation only

Since 1991, Sponsored Programs has hosted an annual celebration to commend and applaud the efforts of our faculty and staff working with sponsor funded projects. Invitations are extended to faculty and staff members who have either written or participated in a sponsored program activity during the designated academic calendar year. This annual event, heralded as a signature event, celebrates the very best of our faculty and staff talent.

At selected luncheons, the Chancellor has extended to meritorious faculty the Chancellor’s Award of Distinction for Sponsored Program Success. This award was established by the Chancellor in 2009 and was designed to celebrate and inspire excellence in sponsored program proposal success, an essential component to institutional excellence.
