The UCOL Honours Awards recognise and celebrate the contribution of people to UCOL, the community and society in general. The following awards are conferred by the UCOL Board:
Honorary Fellow This award may be granted to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding and noteworthy contribution to the well-being and benefit of society; UCOL; and or/in their field of endeavour.
The Fellowship is UCOL’s highest honorary award and is reserved for those individuals whose contribution goes well beyond the norm or what is expected of them by virtue of their occupation or profession.
Honorary Associate This award may be granted to an individual who has made a significant contribution, over and above normal duties, to UCOL or the wider community of which UCOL is a part.
Note the Fellowship and Associate Award are generally given to non-UCOL staff. Where a former UCOL Staff member is nominated the criteria should be applied to their contribution outside of their work at UCOL, otherwise an Institutional Medal may be better suited.
Institutional MedalThis award may be granted to an individual who has been and is no longer a permanent employee of UCOL and has made a significant contribution to UCOL or their field of endeavour over and above normal duties.
UCOL Alumni AwardThis award may be granted for significant accomplishments by a UCOL alumni, demonstrated by making a contribution to business/industry/ community at large; stand out in their chosen profession/shows a demonstrated commitment to service through an interest in bettering the lives of others; shows success in their occupation or chosen endeavours.
Nominations are now open for the UCOL Council Honours Awards for 2021 and close on August 30, 2021.
