Warwick's Wonders & Wows

Thanks for your interest - nominations are currently closed. We'll update these web pages when they re-open.

Tell us about a colleague you're proud to be working with!

It could be something caring, thoughtful, or imaginative they have done to help others - inside or outside of work.

Or it could be an unsung hero who has quietly gone about doing their job brilliantly for many years and deserve the recognition for the difference that they make.

Warwick Wows

Teamwork makes the dream work!

Tell us about a team who have worked or are working brilliantly together to achieve something special.

It could be a team from one department or a group of people from different areas in the University.

Get involved

When nominating, as well as telling us why you have chosen your nominee(s) you will also have the option of uploading a video or image to help to tell the story.

Winners will be chosen by Stuart Croft, Vice-Chancellor, who will also occasionally make his own nominations when he sees exceptional work he wants to recognise. We'll announce the winners in our staff communications.

April 2023 Winners

March 2023 Winners
