The 2019 President’s Awards recognises staff who light up UNSW by demonstrating the Values in Action: Our UNSW behaviours.

Now is your opportunity to nominate an individual or a team in this year’s President’s Awards. The Awards are an opportunity for staff to recognise and celebrate those who light up UNSW by actively demonstrating the Values in Action: Our UNSW behaviours:

  • Embraces Diversity
  • Displays Respect
  • Builds Collaboration
  • Demonstrates Excellence
  • Drives Innovation

The President’s Awards provide the opportunity to celebrate not only what people do but how they go about doing it.

Nominations for the 2019 President’s Awards are now open

In 2018, an incredible 230 nominations were received, with representation across all faculties and divisions and all UNSW campuses.

To nominate a colleague or team (up to 10 people), simply visit the President’s Awards site and give an overview of your nominee’s contribution to UNSW and how they actively demonstrate our UNSW Values in Action.

Nominations will close on 25 August.

All nominees will be showcased on the President’s Awards site where you can read the unique contributions of this year’s nominees. As we have done for the past few years, nominees will go into the running for the People’s Choice Award; the most popular nominee as voted by UNSW staff. Voting for the People’s Choice Award will open once the nomination period has closed.

The President’s Awards event will be held on 9 October, an occasion to celebrate the contributions of all nominees and announce the awardees for each President’s Awards category and the People’s Choice Award.

All awardees will receive a contribution to their professional development of $5,000 per award category and an invitation to dine with the President and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Jacobs.
