Vice-Chancellor's Awards

The Vice-Chancellor's Awards acknowledge and celebrate our people who make outstanding contributions to our University community, our mission and objectives, and embody our core values in their behaviour.

This year’s awards have been reframed in line with our broader institutional value of being truly people-centred, recognising outstanding contributions by people who consistently demonstrate the values and behaviours articulated in the University and People strategies.
