The Chancellor's Citation for Academic Achievement was first awarded in 1979. It recognizes outstanding contributions in scholarship, research, teaching and creative work. In 1981 the title of the citation was changed to The Chancellor's Citation for Exceptional Academic Achievement and a second citation was created - The Chancellor's Citation for Distinguished Service, recognizing nonacademic contributions to the University. In 1995 the first Distinguished Service Citation was awarded for Contributions as an Emeritus Professor. In 1997 the first awards for Outstanding Contributions to the University's Academic Programs were given.
