Alumni Awards 2017: Who gets your nomination?

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.


Our annual Alumni Awards seek to recognise the excellence and achievement of individuals within our network.  This year, there are seven Award categories and we're delighted to be partnering with Kier Group who are sponsoring one of our new entrepreneurial categories.

  • Inspiring the Next Generation Award
  • Excellence in Service Award
  • GOLD Award (Graduate of the Last Decade) Award
  • Distinguished Alumni Award
  • Emerging Entrepreneur Award - sponsored by Kier Group
  • Accomplished Entrepreneur Award
  • Contribution to Welsh Life and Culture Award

Nominations are open and the deadline for submission is midnight GMT on Friday 1 September 2017. We invite the alumni community - plus fellow students, staff and organisations working with USW talent -  to nominate individuals worthy of recognition.

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.
