Six Syracuse University faculty and staff members will receive The Chancellor’s Citation for Excellence at a campus ceremony and reception in their honor Thursday, April 15. The Chancellor’s Citation awards were first presented in 1979 in recognition of outstanding achievement in teaching, scholarship and creative work. 

Carty, a sociologist who focuses on the political economies of gender, race and class inequality in national and international spheres, came to SU in 2000 to become chairperson of the Department of African American Studies (AAS) within The College of Arts and Sciences. Her writing, teaching and community involvement are undergirded by black feminist analysis that is principled, path breaking and visionary.  Read SU News for the full citation.
