Nominations for the 2020 Partnership Awards closed on Monday 17 February 2020, with the exception of nominations for the Southwest Jiaotong University Joint School. Please do not make a nomination if you are not from this area, as it will not be counted.
We have received over 2700 nominations, each of which celebrates the work done at the University of Leeds. Thank you to everyone who went the extra mile, and made someone's year by nominating them.
Faculties or services will announce their local winners in the Spring Term (and some will have their own celebration events). We will announce the overall winners at the Partnership Awards Ceremony on Monday 27 April 2020.
