Athena SWAN Student Extra-Mile Awards 2020

The School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences (SSEHS) has always recognised and valued students and staff as its greatest assets. Athena SWAN Student Extra-Mile Awards have been created for students and the students have led the process of selection. This is in collaboration with the Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) course reps and School Presidents. These annual awards, launched for the first time this academic year, are to recognise students who have given extra to the School in a variety of categories.

On Wednesday 6 May we invited all nominees of an Athena SWAN Student Extra-Mile Award to a very special online event. Our School President for Sport Programmes, Miss Chloe Newman, along with staff members Dr Keith Tolfrey and Dr Christof Leicht announced the winners for each award. Congratulations to all those who were nominated. Each award recipient will receive a framed certificate in the post, along with a £25 gift voucher.
