Dear colleagues and students
In a world continuously facing intertwined crises, the University of Cape Town (UCT) remains resilient and persists in driving excellence. Building on lessons from 2022, UCT continues to exemplify inventiveness, rigour in research, voluntarism and community engagement.
Our vision, as you know, is to unleash human potential to create a fair and just society. You, our staff, continue to demonstrate that this vision can be realised.
We hope we have through the year shown, in words and deeds, our recognition of all your efforts. The forthcoming UCT Staff Annual Awards provides a further opportunity for us to show our appreciation.
There is recognition through the Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Awards of the contributions that teamwork, collective action, collaboration and leadership make towards the health and wellbeing of colleagues and in ensuring the sustainability of the university.
We, again, call on anyone who is aware of teams or individuals who have gone beyond the call of duty to make a difference in the lives of others through transformative change, to nominate them for the Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence Awards. These awards will be made in three categories: global citizenship, service excellence, and transformation.
We encourage all professional, administrative support and services (PASS) staff to apply or nominate colleagues for the Global Citizenship Award and the Service Excellence Award, while all staff at UCT involved in work related to transformation are invited to apply for or nominate colleagues for the Transformation Award. Nominees can be whole teams.
A brief outline of each of the categories is as follows:
The deadline for submissions is Friday, 20 October 2023.
Please submit nominations and applications to email@example.com.
