Following on from the success of previous years, a call for nominations for the 2022 Vice-Chancellor’s Medal is now underway.
The Medal is awarded for exceptional achievement by staff or students.
Any current member of staff or current student at any of the university’s campuses in China, Malaysia or the UK may be nominated for a Vice-Chancellor’s Medal within the broad criteria for the award set out below.
Criteria for the award of the Medal
For the 2022 round of Medal awards, nominations for staff and students who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in supporting the response to the pandemic in whatever arena will be particularly welcomed.
Additional examples of exceptional achievement by staff might include sporting success, leadership of a community project, exceptional service as a school governor, innovation in service delivery, notable curricular innovation or significant research impact of some kind.
Student exceptional achievement could include contributions to Hall or JCR, sporting club, student society, other Students’ Union activities or representation, volunteering in the community, as a student ambassador, student caller, fundraising, or some other activity within a School.
Note though these are just examples and not intended to limit the grounds on which someone might be proposed for an award.
Nomination and selection process
The nomination and selection process for this year is as follows:
Each nomination MUST include the following information, a link to the Microsoft Forms nomination is included below:

Nominations should be submitted no later than 5pm on Friday 1 April 2022.
It is expected that only a small number of Vice-Chancellor’s Medals will be presented in any year making this a very special award for University of Nottingham staff and students.
Resubmissions in subsequent years will be accepted. Note also that very rarely, and at the discretion of the Vice-Chancellor, awards are also made to individuals who are not staff or students of the university but have rendered some form of extraordinary service which merits recognition in this way.
