University Vice-Chancellor recognises outstanding achievement
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford has announced 24 awards to recognise those who have made an outstanding contribution to the life of the University.
The awards particularly recognise work to achieve the overarching objectives of the new University Strategy: excellence; internationalisation; equality and diversity; and sustainability. These awards sit alongside the Vice-Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Awards.
Winners included Professor Diana Anderson for her research into cancer diagnosis, Cycling 4 All for their support to disabled students, and student Rabia Qureshi for her enterprise initiative.
The assessment panel made up of staff and students were impressed by the number, strength and overall quality of the field of nominations this year. Therefore the panel decided to award both Outstanding Achievement Awards and Excellent Achievement Awards.
The Outstanding Achievement Awards will be celebrated at a lunch hosted by the Vice-Chancellor on 8 June 2015 where the recipients will be presented with a certificate recognising their achievement. The Excellent Achievement Award winners will also receive a certificate recognising their achievement.
Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Professor Brian Cantor, said: “I am delighted to recognise the students and the staff who have gone the extra mile in their activities for the benefit of the University. This is testament to the Team Bradford ethos we have fostered here at the University and it is great to see so many examples of achievement across the University.”
