January 22, 2015

The annual THE Leadership and Management Awards, with more than a dozen categories ranging from finance to student services, celebrate the work of university managers and administrators across the UK.

Entries close on Wednesday 25 February, and the ceremony takes place on 18 June at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

The University of East Anglia scooped the top prize of Outstanding Leadership and Management Team last year in an event attended by hundreds of people.

UEA was praised by the judges for its “commitment to improving teaching as well as world-class research…and a focus on boosting staff-to-student ratios”.

The University of Sheffield picked up two awards, winning in both the Outstanding Departmental Administration Team and Outstanding Library Team categories.

The University of Cumbria also won two awards as it was honoured for its Outstanding Finance Team and Outstanding Student Services Team.
