“These awards reflect real success in getting our message across,” said Nicholas Scibetta, Vice President for Communications and Marketing and Chief Communications Officer. “Our strong showing is evidence, not just of the talents and hard work of the MarCom team, but also of the tremendous creative power of teamwork that reaches across all areas of campus.”
During the spring semester, juries with professional experience in the specific categories determine the winners. The judging is hosted and coordinated by colleagues of SUNY institutions.
