UCSA Staff of the Year Awards 2019

Voting for Staff of the Year Awards 2019 has opened!

Since 1995, the UCSA Staff of the Year Awards (formerly Lecturer of the Year Awards) gives students a voice in nominating and deciding the most inspiring and dedicated lecturers, supervisors, administrators, and other non-academic staff members who have given students help and support.

What’s more, when students make a nomination/vote, they are in the draw to win 1 of 4 $50 UCSA Cafe and Bar vouchers.

So encourage your students to vote! You could encourage them to vote for your colleagues or any other UC staff members you think are deserving of an award (or if you are feeling especially confident, you could encourage them to nominate you! Image result for emoticon).

Here’s the link for the voting site: http://ucsa.org.nz/soty to pass on to your students. Below is the QR code you can put on your slides:
