The UQ Chancellor, Mr John Story, and Vice-Chancellor, Professor Paul Greenfield, have advised the winners of two new awards, the Chancellor’s Award for Individual Excellence and the UQ Leadership Award.

Ms Anne Louise Bulloch of the School of Medicine received the Chancellor’s Award at a special ceremony at the Queensland Brain Institute yesterday. The Chancellor’s Award recognises a professional staff member’s outstanding achievement.

Ms Nicole Thompson, Deputy Director of the Research and Innovation Division, was recognised as the winner of the UQ Leadership Award.

Both awards are part of the University’s response to feedback from the Staff Engagement Survey held in 2008.

Ms Heather Kingston, Deputy Chief Financial Officer, received a special commendation at the ceremony.

Mr Story and Professor Greenfield congratulated all the nominees, and thanked staff across the University who took time to nominate them.

The University will invite nominations for the next round during the second half of 2010. Staff are encouraged to nominate a colleague, in order to help the University recognise the outstanding and deserving work of individual staff.
