VC's excellence award winners announced


11 October 2016

Congratulations to the following Education and Social Work staff recognised in the inaugural Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence.

The awards were launched to provide an annual opportunity to recognise and celebrate the exceptional contribution of some University of Sydney staff.

"One of the great things about my job is that I get to work right across the University and see at first hand the remarkable contribution of our teachers, researchers and professional staff," said Vice-Chancellor and Principal Dr Michael Spence.

"The 2016 recipients were among more than 100 staff who were nominated by their colleagues in recognition of their outstanding contribution to the University community. They epitomise what makes our University such a remarkable institution, and what lies at the heart of our aspirations for excellence in our 2016-20 Strategic Plan: we want to be a place that enables all our staff to thrive and realise their full potential."

The awards will be presented at a ceremony during the University's first Innovation Week, running from 24 to 28 October.
