Chang Kee Jung and Fred Goldhaber Receives the SUNY Chancellor's Award  
The Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activity is a SUNY-wide award intended to recognize consistently outstanding scholarly and creative productivity of its faculty.

Chang Kee Jung came to Stony Brook in 1990 joining the high energy experimental group. He participated in the D0 experiment, the Super-Kamiokande experiment, the K2K Experiment, the UNO Project and the Henderson DUSEL/HUSEP Project. He is one of the world's leading experts in the study of proton decay and neutrino oscillations. Currently he serves as the International Co-Spokesperson for the T2K Collaboration and Spokesperson for the T2K US Collaboration. Chang Kee is also a tireless and enthusiastic teacher, and he is especially good at explaining physics principles to a non-physicist audience, for example here. He mentored 10 Post Doctoral Associates, 17 Ph.D. students and 4 Master's students.

Alfred (Fred) Goldhaber joined the YITP and Department of Physics and Astronomy in 1967. He is being recognized for wide-ranging and important work, in the theory of high energy particle and nuclear collisions, magnetic monopoles, cosmology, precision tests of the photon's mass and neutrino physics. In each of these areas he has brought an uncommon creative insight and made contributions of lasting value. He been active as well on campus, having received, for example, an award for his contributions to student life. Over the past several years he has collaborated with Robert Crease of the Department of Philosophy in creating an interdisciplinary course that offers undergraduates in all fields the opportunity to examine the quantum revolution that has done so much to shape our world today.

The awards will be presented by Samuel L. Stanley, President of Stony Brook University at a ceremony on October 7, 2014.
