Renaming the Teaching and Learning Building — nominations open

May 7th, 2019

As announced on International Women’s Day, we’re renaming the Teaching and Learning Building. Now’s your chance to get involved by helping us pick a name.

We’re planning to rename this state-of-the-art building after an inspirational woman who has made a significant contribution to teaching, learning or research.

This is a great opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding contribution that women staff and students make to our local community. With this in mind, we’re particularly welcoming nominees who have a demonstrable link to the history of Nottingham and/or the University.

Professor Sarah Sharples, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, explained:

“The names of our buildings can remind us about our University history, but also affect our sense of inclusion in the present. Our commitment to delivering an inclusive University environment means that we need to think about diversity in the names of our buildings, and has prompted us to focus on women nominations for this important new building at the heart of our University Park campus. I look forward to receiving an inspirational set of names nominated by our University community.”

To make your nomination, please fill in this form. If you’d like to nominate more than one person, you should use a separate form each time.

The deadline for nominations is Tuesday 21 May 2019.

All of the names put forward will be considered by a panel, who will decide on a shortlist. This shortlist will then be passed back to staff and students for a final vote later this month, with the subsequent formal recommendation provided to University Executive Board before the end of session.
