June 3, 2015

Albany – State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher today announced 80 recipients of the 2014-15 Scholar Athlete Award, which recognizes outstanding academic excellence and athletic achievement.

"The SUNY scholar athletes are some of our most exemplary students, having achieved the highest levels of success not only in class but in their respective sports,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. “Congratulations to each of the students recognized for these achievements over the past year, and thank you to the many professors, coaches, and staff across SUNY who support them."

In order to be considered for this award, student-athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees’ academic credentials and athletic accomplishments were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across the SUNY system and members of the provost’s office.

A complete list of this year’s winners is available online.

SUNY campuses host more than 85 NCAA Division I teams, 290 NCAA Division III teams, 385 NJCAA teams, and hundreds of non-competitive clubs.
