After almost two years that have been like no other, it is now, more than ever, important that we recognise individuals who are making extraordinary contributions to our University. One of our core values is to celebrate our community and to acknowledge the achievements of our colleagues.

Save the date

The actual awards night will be held on Tuesday 23 November 2021 so please save the date.  

We will plan for another virtual event again due to the uncertainty about when we can resume events on campus. Our Chancellor and VC still want to bring people together – to say thank you, and to acknowledge your role in our community, at an event with all our peers.

We will also be celebrating our 25 and 40 year service awards, recognising those who have dedicated the majority of their career to our campus and community.
