NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR THE VICE-CHANCELLOR’S AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE 2020/2021

Deadline: Friday, February 26, 2021. 

ABOUT THE AWARDS

The Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Excellence programme was established in 1993 by Sir Alister McIntyre, then Vice-Chancellor, to recognise outstanding achievements by Academic staff members in the areas of Teaching, Research, Service to the University Community, Contribution to Public Service, and All-round Excellence in a combination of two or more of the areas. In 2003, the recognition scheme was expanded to include Senior Administrative and Professional staff, and in 2012 the Vice-Chancellor’s Departmental Award for Excellence was introduced to recognise departments and units in the area of quality assurance excellence. In 2016/2017, two new awards were added for Excellence in Multi-Campus Research Collaboration (the One UWI Award) and Excellence in International Collaboration (the Globalisation Award). All awardees, having proven themselves exemplars in their respective pursuits, are presented with a citation and a monetary prize.

The annual Awards event is one of the highlights on the University’s calendar. The ceremony has had added significance under the leadership of current Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, who was one of the recipients of the inaugural Award.

This 2019/2020 celebration, marked the first-ever, virtual ceremony, as well as the largest number of awardees to be honoured at-any-one ceremony, taking the total number of awards since inception, to 153.
