Elizabeth Bomberg wins EUSA Teaching Award
Elizabeth Bomberg, a Professor of Environmental Politics at the School of Social and Political Science (SPS), has won a Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA) Teaching Award for Outstanding Commitment to Social Justice and Sustainability.
These student-led awards recognise the pivotal role that staff play in the student experience at the University of Edinburgh, from lecturers, tutors, supervisors and personal tutors to professional services staff. They provide students with an opportunity to thank staff for their hard work and celebrate the best of teaching and support here.
Elizabeth, who works within Politics and International Relations, was nominated for the Outstanding Commitment to Social Justice and Sustainability Award for "her exploration of environmentalism and political structures, which introduce her students to new and different ways of thinking while addressing some of the big questions of our time."
In the winner announcement video, Elizabeth says:
"This particular EUSA Teaching Award is for Outstanding Commitment to Social Justice and Sustainability and I am indeed entirely committed to both these aims. The fact that my commitment has come through in my teaching is really important.... but the true inspiration and hope for change is not from me - it is from you, the students."
