Faculty & Staff Recognition Ceremony

A new Buffalo State celebration was introduced with the first Faculty and Staff Recognition Ceremony in November 2012 in the Warren Enters Theatre. This now annual fall event recognizes Buffalo State recipients of SUNY Chancellor's and President's Awards for Excellence and acknowledges faculty and staff for certain other recognitions received in the previous year. The campus community attended the inaugural event to help launch this new tradition at Buffalo State and is invited annually to participate.
