There are three categories of awards:

  • Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Exceptional Performance by General Staff
  • Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Exceptional Performance in Research
  • Vice-Chancellor’s Awards for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning

The awardees receive a monetary prize to be used for professional development purposes. Individual recipients receive a prize valued at $5,000 and teams $10,000.

All members of staff are encouraged to consider nominating colleagues for these awards.
