ANU Vice-Chancellor's Annual Awards

The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards are a celebration of the depth and diversity of talent within the ANU staff community. The awards are an opportunity for the Vice-Chancellor to recognise the achievements of professional and academic staff for their impact to ANU as well as the local, national and international community.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards have consolidated a number of staff accolades into a single recognition program which will culminate with an annual celebratory Gala Dinner. Details of the award categories can be found below.

ANU Service Awards will be presented at the Vice-Chancellor’s Garden Party, held in December each year.
