The St. John Fisher College Communications/Journalism Department, together with Jack Palvino, will honor five Rochester thought-leaders who have demonstrated continued excellence in communications. SSRN President and CEO Gregg Gordon will receive the inaugural Media Gold Award in New Media/Social Media for his leadership and vision of online scholarly communications.
Over the past decade, Mr. Gordon has established SSRN as the leading resource for sharing and disseminating scholarly research worldwide. Recently recognized as the number one online repository in the world, SSRN’s community serves researchers, students, and academics in the social sciences and humanities. SSRN’s social media program is active in a number of spaces including the expansive SSRN eLibrary, SSRNblog.com, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, and has been key to better reaching researchers and increasing readership for the scholars they serve.
“I am extremely honored to have been selected to receive the Jack Palvino Excellence in Communication Award,” Gordon said. “It is a wonderful recognition of the hard work of many, many people at SSRN and I look forward to accepting the award on behalf of all of them.”
