Student Choice Awards – Celebrating UC Staff

You might know this event as Staff of the Year Awards, or maybe even Lecturer of the Year. Let us introduce you to the 2021 version – the UCSA Student Choice Awards; more colourful and student
focused than ever before!

We’d love to hear about a staff member on the University of
Canterbury campus that you’d like to celebrate. This year, we have opened a number of categories for students to nominate within:

  • College Lecturer Awards (the winner of each College will be
    considered for the overall Lecturer of the Year Award)
  • Postgraduate Supervisor of the Year Award
  • Administrator of the Year Award
  • Technical Staff Member of the Year Award
  • Support Services Staff Member of the Year Award
  • Superstar Award
  • Great Character Award
  • The Wellbeing Champion Award
  • Make Your Own Awards

If your favourite staff member doesn’t quite fit within the
‘traditional’ awards, you can even make your own award! You name the award, you nominate the staff member. We will honour the best (maybe worst) make your own awards on the night and even invite you to the ceremony to present it.

Nominations close on September 15th so get in quick!
