Making a Difference Awards 2016, open for entries

The Making a Difference Awards recognise and celebrate the many different types of social responsibility achievements of the University’s academic and professional support staff, students and alumni.

Culminating in a major awards ceremony hosted by the President and Vice-Chancellor in May 2016, the awards will celebrate and raise awareness of how individuals and teams across the University are making a difference to the social and environmental wellbeing of our communities and wider society.

Professor Nancy Rothwell said: “I would encourage everyone in our University community who is making a positive contribution to society to consider entering these awards as this will raise the profile of your work and communicate and enhance its impact.”
