Volunteer Awards 2017 - nominations now closed
What are the Volunteer Awards?
To say a big thank you to those who give their time and celebrate the impact our inspirational community of volunteers make at Nottingham, we hold the University of Nottingham Volunteer Awards every year. We have five Award categories this year, each designed to recognise the amazing actions and efforts our volunteers make to enhance the University experience of our students, transform the lives of those in our local communities and make positive difference to the wider world.
We would love staff and students from across the University to help us recognise volunteers who have gone the extra mile to make a difference, by nominating the volunteers you know for an Award.
- UK Alumni Volunteer of the Year: This Award will be given to an alumnus or alumna who has contributed to the University or the student experience with outstanding enthusiasm and commitment, who has inspired others or who has acted as an ambassador to promote the University and its values.
- International Alumni Volunteer of the Year: This Award will recognise an alumnus or alumna who has gone above and beyond the expected role of an international volunteer. It will be awarded to someone who has contributed to the University or the student experience with outstanding enthusiasm and commitment, who has inspired others or who has acted as an ambassador to promote the University and its values.
- Community Volunteer of the Year: This Award will recognise the sustained commitment and outstanding enthusiasm of a volunteer who is not a student, staff, or alumnus. They will have gone above and beyond their expected role, and will be an inspiration in their dedication to their contributions to the University.
- Longstanding Volunteer Award: This award will recognise individuals who have shown sustained and substantial commitment to the University for a period of four years or more. We would expect that more than one person will be eligible for this award.
- University of Nottingham Volunteer of the Year: This will be awarded to an exceptionally committed and enthusiastic individual whose significant contribution to the University has led them to win one of the categories above, and who deserves recognition as the overall volunteer of the year.
