Making a Difference Awards 2018 – nominations now open

Do you know someone who’s gone above and beyond to make a difference this year? Give them the recognition they deserve by nominating them for a Making a Difference Award.

Each year, we celebrate the many different ways that our students, staff and alumni contribute to local communities and the wider society, providing a platform to share some of our very best social responsibility stories. By entering the Awards you can help make a difference by driving change and inspiring others to act.

Categories in this year’s awards include sustainability, community and public engagement, widening participation, social enterprise, responsible processes and equality and diversity. If you, or someone you know, is active in one of these areas, don’t let it go unrecognised!

If you want to get involved, here’s everything you need to know:

  • The deadline for entries is 22 January 2018
  • You can self-nominate, or nominate someone that you know has made a difference
  • Both individuals and teams can enter
  • The high-profile awards ceremony will be hosted by the President and Vice-Chancellor in May 2018

Entries can be made on the social responsibility website, where you’ll also find lots more information including details of previous winners.
