On 28th March, AUB held the annual AUBRIETA, SAUBS and AUBSU Thank You Awards Ceremony, in place to showcase exemplary members of staff at our TEF Gold institution.

AUBRIETA (AUB Recognition for Innovation and Excellence in Teaching Awards)

The Second year these awards have been celebrated, to recognise the exceptional dedication and commitment our innovative teaching staff provide to the AUB community.

AUB is proud of its achievement in teaching and learning and the AUBRIETA awards furthers the support and recognition of individual and team innovation and excellence in teaching. The purpose of these awards is to increase esteem in teaching and to recognise those who contribute and develop the teaching environment at AUB. These annual awards recognise outstanding contributions to the learning experience of our students and are awarded to staff who demonstrate academic and pedagogic innovation in support of the teaching environment and can evidence real improvements and change in student learning.

SAUBS (Supporting AUB Students)

The launch of the SAUBS awards in 2019 celebrates the efforts and excellence of non-academic staff who offer front line support in their work with AUB students. The awards recognise excellence in the work of those who provide outstanding contributions to the student learning environment at AUB.

AUBSU Thank You Awards

The Thank You Awards are in place to recognise outstanding contributors, whether they are professional services, technical or academic members of staff, voted by students themselves.

This year was also the inaugural Student’s Union Sustainability Thank You Award, to acknowledge staff who have dedicated their time and efforts into sustainability for the university and surrounding community.

The SU Thank You Awards were presented by AUBSU Student President, Gio Garancini, and Vice President, Chloe Harty, to recognise the hard work across academic and professional services staff.

The AUBRIETA and SAUBS awards were presented by Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Emma Hunt.
