Nominations open for Principal’s Medals 2022

Staff and students are invited to nominate a member of our University community for the 2022 Principal’s Medals.

The medals are one of the most important ways in which the University recognises colleagues and students who have delivered exceptional service to the University and our wider communities.  

Staff in both professional services and academic roles and current or recently-graduated students can be nominated for outstanding contributions which support our organisation’s values.
