Volunteer Awards 2018 

Celebrate our outstanding volunteers now!

What are the Volunteer Awards? 

Our annual Volunteer Awards celebrate extraordinary individuals who give their time to improve the student experience, transform our local communities and make a positive difference to our world.

Staff and students can now recognise volunteers who've gone the extra mile for the University by nominating them via our four award categories: 

Nominations are now closed. 

2018 winners will be notified in September and invited to attend an awards ceremony in Nottingham on Wednesday 24th October


Award categories

  • Alumni Volunteer of the Year: To recognise an alumnus or alumna of the University of Nottingham who has gone above and beyond the expected role of a volunteer. It will be awarded to someone who has contributed to the University or the student experience with outstanding enthusiasm and commitment, who has inspired others or who has acted as an ambassador to promote the University and its values.
  • Community Volunteer of the Year: To recognise the sustained commitment and outstanding enthusiasm of a volunteer who is not a student, staff or alumnus. They will have gone above and beyond their expected role, and will be an inspiration in their dedication to their contributions to the University.
  • Longstanding Volunteer Award: To recognise individuals who have shown sustained and substantial commitment to the University for a period of at least four years. We would expect that more than one person will be eligible for this award. This can include any years an alumnus may have volunteered as a student in a similar role (i.e. student ambassador to international recruitment volunteer).
  • University of Nottingham Volunteer of the Year: To recognise an exceptionally committed and enthusiastic individual whose significant contribution to the University has led them to win one of the categories above, and who deserves recognition as the overall volunteer of the year.
