Dean's SharED Purpose Awards

ANNUAL DEAN'S SHARED PURPOSE AWARDS FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF 2019-2021

Please note: Nominations are now closed! The below is for information only. Nominees will be contacted in due course and the virtual awards event will take place on 6 July, 1-2pm.

During 2020, the Deans SharED Purpose awards were suspended due to the workload demands of the pandemic, which saw staff across all areas of the Faculty continuing to support students in extremely challenging circumstances.

As we are released from lockdown it is my belief that it is VERY important that we mark and recognise all those who have made an exceptional contribution to supporting and promoting positive ways of working in line with our Vision and SharED Purpose. This is embodied within our strapline – ‘Encouraging, Enlightening, Enriching’ and has been important in all of our activities. This has enabled each of us to challenge each other so we move and aspire to improve our interactions between;

  • FMHSC staff and students
  • FMHSC students as individuals and as groups
  • FMHSC staff as individuals or groups
  • FMHSC staff working with internal and external stakeholders

In order to celebrate where this is working, and continue to promote cultural change, the Deans Annual Awards were created in 2016. This formal mechanism helps surface the exceptional quality and achievements of our students, our staff and our external stakeholders. Five awards will be available;

  • Student to student
  • Student
  • Staff
  • Stakeholder (external)
  • Stakeholder (internal)

The award winners, nominees, and the individuals who made the nominations will be invited to a virtual Award event on CCCU Teams. Winners will receive £100 gift vouchers in recognition of their achievement and all student awards will feature within the University Graduation Programmes.

As this will be the last award of my tenure, I hope that the response will truly capture the breadth and depth of the contributions that have been made – and I am looking forward to reading the nominations with the panel.

In light of the cancellation of awards last year, the activities time period has been extended from Sept 2019 until the present day in 2021. The awards event will be held virtually on 6th July, 1-2pm. If you are making nominations, we ask that you hold the date in your diaries.
