Award Categories

You can nominate individuals and teams from the University's professional services and support staff, for awards in the following four categories:

  • Enhancing the Student Experience
  • Environment and Sustainability Ambassador
  • Manager / Leader of the Year
  • Supporting Colleagues

This year we would also like to encourage and recognise collaborative team work and will be including an 'Overall Team Award'. This will be awarded to a team of staff who have made a significant contribution to the overall success of the University during the past year, and demonstrating how they have consistently delivered best practice. Please note, this is not a category and the winning team will be selected from all team nominations received.
