Alumni Volunteer Awards

After a successful launch last year, our Alumni Volunteer Awards once again celebrate all of our amazing volunteers and say thank you to those exceptional individuals who do so much to support us all.

Earlier this year we called on our students, staff and alumni to nominate alumni who deserve recognition for going the extra mile.

Winners will be announced following Volunteers Week on 7 June.

 

The awards

These awards are named in honour of two long-standing alumni volunteers, formally recognising the commitment and support that they have given us over many years.

The Debbie Hill Award for exceptional support of students

Named in honour of Debbie Hill (Drama, 2006), Head of Volunteering at Marie Curie, in recognition of her invaluable advice and guidance on the development of our alumni volunteering programme. Her advice and guidance have ensured that our alumni volunteers are engaged in meaningful, satisfying activities and are recognized and celebrated for their incredible work.

This award celebrates individual alumni volunteers who give their time and expertise to provide exceptional support to our students. Volunteers who:

  • Go above and beyond in their support for Exeter students
  • Inspire our students with their passion and commitment
  • Provide invaluable advice and guidance, making an outstanding contribution to our students’ success

This could be in the form of career mentoring for students, taking part in mock interviews, giving a course specific talk to students, supporting a Guild society activity etc.

The Nicholas Bull Award for exceptional support of the alumni community

Nicholas Bull (Chemistry, 1973) has been volunteering his time and expertise for the University of Exeter for almost two decades. Over the years, he has taken on a wide variety of roles and activities to support our staff, students and his fellow alumni. As member of the Alumni Network Group for 10 years and independent member of Council since 2009, he has worked tirelessly to ensure that the alumni voice is represented across the University.

This award celebrates individual alumni volunteers who give their time and expertise to support our alumni community, both in the UK and internationally. Volunteers who:

  • Go above and beyond in their support of their fellow alumni
  • Inspire fellow alumni with their passion and commitment to Exeter’s lifelong community
  • Make a significant contribution to our flourishing alumni community, either regionally or internationally

This could be fellow alumni who organise alumni events and activities, work on alumni committees, etc.
