University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg and Jared L. Cohon, president emeritus of Carnegie Mellon University, are sharing the Elsie Hilliard Hillman Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence, Pitt officials announced Monday.

Pitt's Institute of Politics created the award in 2012 to recognize Hillman's lifetime of public service. Nordenberg, who is leaving his post in Aug. 1, and Cohon, who stepped down as president last year, were chosen for their record of cooperation and joint achievement.

“Through their collaborative leadership style, Nordenberg and Cohon have demonstrated how developing strategic partnerships can improve governments, philanthropies, and public and private enterprises, creating opportunities for regional prosperity to be enjoyed by all,” Terry Miller, director of the institute, said in a news release..

The two leaders will be honored during a ceremony April 8 at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland. Hillman, 88, a noted Pittsburgh philanthropist, was the first recipient of the award in 2012 for her work in civil rights, employment and women's rights in Western Pennsylvania and beyond.
