I was pleased to present the winners of the 2010 Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Awards with their certificates and prizes this afternoon. The winners were chosen by expert panels, for their excellence in the areas of Engagement, Citizenship, Service, Research and Learning and Teaching (L&T).
The L&T Awards were announced earlier in the year in order to compete in the Australian Learning and Teaching Council Awards. All other recipients learned today for the first time of their recognition as leaders at ECU.
It is important that we recognise and reward colleagues who achieve outstanding outcomes and contribute to achieving a more prosperous, inclusive and sustainable community.
The winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Awards are a testament to the University’s commitment to the values or personal excellence, integrity, rational inquiry and respect.
I congratulate all the winners and thank the staff who joined me to help celebrate the achievement of the recipients of the Awards this year.
