Your chance to highlight the amazing work of a team or individual with the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards

As many of you may know, nominations are currently open to put forward individuals and teams for a Vice-Chancellor’s Award.

There are 17 awards available this year that demonstrate the work across the many varied areas of the University, with categories focusing on areas including student experience, sport, EDI, research and innovation, international engagement and impact, as well as living the University values. 

All shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in September that will recognise, honour and celebrate their amazing achievements. 

If you know a team or an individual that deserves to be recognised, here are some quick tips for writing your nomination:  

  1. The nomination should be based on work that has taken place within the last 12 months 

  1. Consider which award category is most suitable for your nomination, and please avoid submitting the same nomination across more than one award category 

  1. Don’t forget to include examples and any evidence where you can 

  1. Explain how the University has benefitted from their work and the impact it has made on the wider community (internally and/or externally) 

  1. Note any challenges that were overcome, and what was innovative about it 

  1. Mention how it links to the Strategy and its values 

  1. Speak to your manager or contact Anne Wilkinson if you are unsure which category your nomination falls under.  

Previous winner Dr Emily Hayday, Senior Lecturer in Sport Business commented: “As a winner at last year’s Vice Chancellor Award (EDI-Campus Development), it was fantastic to be acknowledged for the work I had been involved with at the Loughborough London Campus working on creating a caring community. I was honoured to be nominated and the event itself was an inspirational night to celebrate amazing colleagues who had undertaken valuable projects and contributed to the University in diverse ways.”
