Vice-Chancellor's Awards 2016/17

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

Prof Helen Marshall

Dear Colleagues

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards area of our website. These Awards, by virtue of their celebratory uniqueness, are one of the many annual highlights for me and I do encourage you to give thought to those colleagues who have made a real difference with either their work, or indeed, by the way they deliver this work, and nominate them under one of the categories.

Please remember – these Awards are your opportunity to celebrate those colleagues who make a real difference – often behind the scenes – and to ensure they get the recognition they deserve.

The fruition of the Awards is University Day which is my opportunity to meet the winners, and this year's University Day, which is being held on Wednesday 14 June, promises to be even bigger and better than ever.

Good luck with your applications and I look forward to seeing you all in June.

Best wishes,

Helen Marshall
