Nominate international colleagues for photographic portraits

March 4th, 2019

For the next stage of the University’s Portrait Diversification project — which began in 2018 with the celebrated Women at Nottingham photographic portrait project in the Council Dining Room — we are asking staff and students to nominate international colleagues who make a real difference to life at the University.

In the current political climate and underlining the Vice-Chancellor’s clear commitment to staff and to diversity, it has never been more important to celebrate the incredible contributions of our international staff working on the UK campuses, whether they are from the EU or more globally.

The first call out in January resulted in a number of fantastic nominations. Thank you to everyone who has already submitted suggestions; it has been inspiring to see how you value your colleagues.

We want to ensure we are being inclusive of all job families and levels, and therefore encourage proposals for individuals or teams of international staff who make the University experience truly exceptional for staff and students.

The resultant selection will be photographed by Lisa Gilligan-Lee and their portraits framed and hung in the Trent Committee Room, alongside the portraits of Professor Sir Colin Campbell and Professor Sir David Greenaway, who initiated, developed and continue to champion our international agenda.

Please complete this form with your nomination and do make sure you include brief details on why you have decided to recommend them.

The deadline is Friday 15 March. The new exhibition will be launched in June 2019.
