Vote for your Volunteer of the Year!
Having hit our Campaign target for alumni volunteering an incredible two and a half years early, we want to celebrate all of our amazing volunteers and to say thank you to those exceptional individuals who do so much to support us all.
For the first time, we are launching the University of Exeter Alumni Volunteer Awards! We are calling on our students, staff and alumni to nominate individuals that deserve recognition for going the extra mile.
This is your chance to say a huge thank you to those individuals who have supported you! Votes close on 19th March, after which the shortlist will be announced to students, staff and alumni. The winners will be announced and awards presented at the Alumni Gala Dinner on 10 May 2018 in London.
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
