Submissions are now open for the 2015 College Recognition Awards.

Staff and students in the College of Humanities and Social Science are encouraged to celebrate the outstanding work of colleagues, tutors or lecturers by nominating them for a prize. Nominations are open now until 4 May 2015.

The College of Humanities and Social Science launched the awards in 2014 to recognise outstanding contributions by staff employed within the College.

The seven award categories recognise excellence in teaching, mentoring colleagues, leadership, teamwork and engaging with the wider community.
