University Volunteer Awards 2023 – submit your nomination

January 16th, 2023

The university’s annual Volunteer Awards – run by the Campaign and Alumni Relations Office (CARO) – are back for 2023 and the team is looking for your nominations.

The awards, which have been running since 2016, celebrate our inspirational volunteer community and recognise people who have made outstanding contributions to the university and its community, showing exceptional dedication, creativity, innovation or leadership.

Staff across the university are now encouraged to nominate a deserving candidate in one of the following three categories by the deadline on Sunday 26 February 2023:

  • Alumni Volunteer of the Year Award

To recognise an alumnus or alumna of the University of Nottingham who has gone above and beyond the expected role of a volunteer. It will be awarded to someone who has contributed to the university or the student experience with outstanding enthusiasm and commitment, who has inspired others or who has acted as an ambassador to promote the university and its values.

  • Community Volunteer of the Year Award (Individual or Group)

To recognise the sustained commitment and outstanding enthusiasm of a volunteer who is not a student, staff, or alumnus. They will have gone above and beyond their expected role and will be an inspiration in their dedication to their contributions to the university.

  • International Volunteer of the Year Award

This award will recognise an individual who volunteers for the university overseas and goes above and beyond as an advocate, volunteer, and representative of Nottingham across the globe. It can be awarded to an individual volunteering in any country other than the UK.

The winners will be presented with their awards at the annual Volunteer Awards ceremony at Lakeside Arts, held during National Volunteers’ Week in June.

For any questions about the awards email Rebekah Spencer, Volunteering and Advocacy Offer, CARO.
