Putting Nottingham’s global diversity in the picture

July 1st, 2019

The University of Nottingham has unveiled a special portrait series aimed at celebrating the outstanding contribution of international colleagues.

The Celebrating Our International Colleagues exhibition features some of the many international colleagues who support excellence across the academic, technical and professional services.

It’s the second in a programme of exhibitions aimed at diversifying the University’s approach to portraiture across the university’s UK campuses and follows last year’s successful Women at Nottingham exhibition.

The latest series features 31 photographic portraits which resulted from a call for nominations across the institution for international colleagues (individuals or teams) whose contributions make a positive difference to working or studying at Nottingham.

The portraits will remain on display in the Trent Committee Room and Council Dining Room for a minimum of 12 months before being distributed around the university.

Professor Jeremy Gregory, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Arts, said: “Our international colleagues play a huge role in the life and success of our university. This latest series of portraits is a fitting way to celebrate all that they do and will be a lasting reminder of their invaluable contribution for many years to come.”

The portrait exhibition will be formally launched by the Vice-Chancellor Professor Shearer West at a special celebration event in Trent Building on Tuesday 9 July.

Colleagues are welcome to view the portraits during the following specially-organised viewing slots:

  • 30pm-6pm, Wednesday 10 July
  • 5pm-7pm, Thursday 11 July
  • 3pm-5pm, Tuesday 30 July
  • 12pm-2pm, Wednesday 31 July
