Every day ANU staff go above and beyond to make sure our students have an educational experience to rival that of any of the world’s great universities. They work extremely hard to improve the quality of learning and teaching at ANU and ensure our students are given the finest education in this country.

Recognising and rewarding staff for the many great things they do is part of the ANU ethos.

I am delighted to advise that nominations for the 2017 Vice-Chancellor's Awards for Excellence in Education are now open for all university academic and professional staff.

There are six award types open for nomination:
