Friday deadline for Alumni Awards 2016


Launched earlier this year, the deadline for the new University of South Wales Alumni Awards is this Friday (2 Sept).

The University of South Wales community - graduates and students alike - is filled with people making a difference at all levels of society, worldwide. Be that in business or industry, society or culture – or right here on our doorstep within the University.


New for 2016 is the launch of our annual Alumni Awards which seek to recognise the excellence and achievement of individuals within our network. The actions of our alumni reflect the excellence of a USW education and our mission to provide not only innovative education and world class graduates, but also culturally aware global citizens making positive strides.


To celebrate the transformative and inspiring achievements of our alumni, we invite the alumni community - and extended community partners inclusive of students and staff -  to nominate individuals worthy of recognition.

There are four Award categories in 2016. These are

  • Inspiring the Next Generation Award
  • Excellence in Service Award
  • GOLD Award (Graduate of the Last Decade) Award
  • Distinguished Alumni Award

Nominations are now open and the deadline for submission is midnight GMT on Friday 2 September 2016. Award finalists and Award winners will be honored at the Alumni Awards and Supporter Reception event on Friday 7 October 2016.

So, whether you value the efforts that one of your classmates gives to ensuring your cohort remains connected or perhaps you have admiration for a former student you know who goes that extra mile to support student career or placement initiatives, these Awards are the opportunity to honour our community champions.
