RUSU Excellence Awards winners announced

RUSU awards


The annual Partnership in T&L Showcase, hosted by Reading University Students’ Union (RUSU) in celebration of the RUSU Excellence Awards, is a highlight in the calendar for both students and colleagues

The RUSU Excellence Awards initiative was inspired by the true spirit of collaboration between students and staff, coming together to solve issues creatively and improve the teaching and learning experience.

Although this year the Showcase itself has been postponed, together with RUSU we would like to take a moment to celebrate the achievements of the colleagues nominated by students for these awards.  All winners and nominees will receive signed certificates and will be able to collect their trophies in due course. RUSU hope to hold the Showcase later in the year to celebrate the hard work and successes of the nominees.

After much deliberation, RUSU narrowed down the hundreds of nominations they received to select the following winners. Please join us to congratulate their success!

Professor Bob Rastall said: “I do my job because I love working with students and helping them to realise their potential - I can’t think of a more rewarding job and it means such a lot to know that you are actually making a difference to people. The fact that this is based on student nomination makes it very special indeed.”
