The Vice-Chancellor’s Diversity Awards were established in 2018 to make initiatives – and individual commitment – more visible.
To see all those shortlisted and winners in each category please visit the Vice Chancellor's Diversity Awards webpage.

Nominations can be made by any staff member or student in the collegiate University, and anyone who works or studies at the collegiate University can be nominated.

Nominations will be judged by two panels:
