Kindness on Campus

Kindness on Campus

The Community Values Education Programme (CVEP) launched the Kindness on Campus awards in 2021 to recognise and celebrate acts of kindness (both small and large) among staff and students.

We believe acts of kindness can contribute towards a strong community and support the University's values.

This year, November 13th is celebrated internationally as World Kindness Day. The 2023 Warwick Kindness on Campus awards will be opening for nominations soon.
