Nominations for the 2024 Awards will open in late Autumn 2023. The deadline will be early January 2024.
Any member of staff can nominate any other individual or team from within the DSE, except themselves or their own team. Managers can, however, nominate their own team and/or team members. For the category of 'Supporter of the Year' nominations are encouraged for colleagues from within the wider University community, but outside of the DSE.
Nominations are very welcome for previous nominees who didn’t go on to win an award, particularly where there is evidence of additional contribution and impact in line with the new award categories.
Nominations for previous winners should only be considered if there has been a substantial development in their contribution or involvement in a new project or initiative that aligns to the new award categories.
Past winners / nominees can be found in the dedicated pages.
A piece of evidence can be a letter, email or statement from a colleague, peer or other satisfied customer which indicates the nominee meets the nomination criteria.
The awards will be judged by a panel which will include representation from both within the DSE and from members of the wider University community. Each judge will review and score the nominations independently before the panel meets. The panel will take into account the chosen award category and judge each nomination against the associated nomination criteria.
The judging panel will also discuss if any of the nominations should be considered for submission to the University's Distinguished Achievement Awards.
All members of staff who have been nominated, their line manager and nominator will receive an invite to the awards ceremony.
