Celebrate Nottingham’s women by naming new building


March 8th, 2019

Staff and students are invited to help name a new state-of-the-art building on University Park.

As the world marks International Women’s Day today the University has announced that the Teaching and Learning building, situated behind Hallward Library, will bear the name of a woman who has made a significant contribution to teaching, learning or research in either Nottingham or British history.

Professor Sarah Sharples Pro-Vice-Chancellor Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and Professor Sarah O’Hara, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Education and Student Experience, said: “From the likes of Ada Lovelace to Marie Stopes history has given us women who have been pivotal in championing and transforming education and research. It is fitting that we use International Women’s Day to recognise this contribution in our newest building on campus. I hope that the name, once chosen, will inspire students and teaching staff in the years to come.”

A longlist of names will be drawn up for staff and students to consider and vote on before a formal recommendation to University Executive Board.

More details will be announced in coming weeks.
