Staff are invited to submit nominations across seven award categories for achievements over the past three years. In 2022, we are introducing a new awards category, Excellence in Stewardship, which replaces the Excellence in Sustainability category.
Nominations for the 2022 Vice-Chancellor's Staff Excellence Awards open on 11 July and close on 12 August.
The 2022 awards will be celebrated at a ceremony in November, where the winner of the Vice-Chancellor's Medal for Excellence, selected from the category winners, will also be announced.
Category winners are awarded $500 for individuals or $2500 for teams. The winner of the Vice-Chancellor's Medal for Excellence is awarded $5000 for individuals or $10,000 for teams.
