Vice-Chancellor's Awards

The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards are the University of Hertfordshire’s prestigious annual awards to showcase and celebrate the inspiring achievements of our staff.

We couldn’t do what we do without our staff, and their hard work and dedication help us to achieve our vision of transforming lives and powering potential.

Through nominations made by our staff and students, we recognise and reward the amazing work of those individuals and teams whose efforts show outstanding commitment to our strategic plan and exemplify our collective values.

Whether that’s through making small changes that have a big impact, publishing ground-breaking research, or being an exemplary tutor, all of our staff make a difference.

We will shortly be opening for nominations for our 15th annual awards. Nominations will open at 10:00 on Monday 6 February 2023, and will close again on Monday 6 March 2023 at 10:00.

Check which categories you can nominate in, and find out what makes an outstanding nomination.
