Leeds Partnership Awards 2023 shortlist announced
More than a thousand nominations have been whittled down to reveal this year’s shortlist for a highly coveted awards scheme.
The annual Leeds Partnership Awards will once again highlight the achievements of staff and students who truly put into practice the Leeds Partnership – an agreement setting out our shared commitment to work together to support all aspects of our University community.
By being nominated for one of these prestigious accolades, staff and students are acknowledged for their successes outside of traditional markers, such as grades or performance reviews, adding to their sense of wellbeing and belonging at Leeds.
This year’s shortlist – selected by a central judging panel, including representatives from the University and Leeds University Union (LUU) – features finalists from 25 different schools and departments, once again highlighting the sheer breadth of collaboration to support and enhance our community.
Bethan Corner, Leeds University Union’s (LUU) Education Officer, said: “This was a really hard year to shortlist given the quality of nominations we received!
“The final shortlist contains individuals and groups from every single faculty, including a number of cross-institutional teams, demonstrating the wide reach of the Partnership at Leeds.”
In the spirit of reflection, improvement and mutual respect at Leeds, nominating someone for a Partnership Award is the perfect way to recognise those who’ve gone above and beyond in every area of University life – paying forward the positive impact they’ve already made and creating the foundations for further inspiring work.
Historically, the Leeds Partnership Awards have always looked to celebrate the achievements of our staff and students. Since last year, however, we’ve been realigning the awards to be inclusive of all those in our community who contribute to making sure our students love their time at Leeds.
Professor Jeff Grabill, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Student Education, said: “The Leeds Partnership Awards are a fantastic opportunity to highlight the amazing people at the core of our learning community, helping us pause and appreciate the collaboration and inclusivity in our work, as well as the commitment to innovative research and learning methods at the heart of the University of Leeds.”
Winners will be announced during a special awards ceremony on campus on 9 May.
