Postgrad students honour uni staff

Friday, 13 October 2006

The University of Adelaide's postgraduate students have paid tribute to the efforts of University staff, with prizes being awarded for excellence to four staff members and two disciplines/schools.

The Adelaide University Postgraduate Students' Association holds an annual Staff Awards ceremony - now in its 15th year - to recognise the quality of supervision and lecturing of postgraduate students, as well as the efforts of general staff and academic disciplines.

This year's awards have gone to:

"The Postgraduate Students' Association is proud to have been recognising outstanding service to postgraduate research and coursework for the past 15 years with these awards," says the President of the Association, Ms Felicity Rai.

"Students themselves nominate outstanding University of Adelaide staff - individuals and disciplines that have assisted them greatly with their research, studies or simply in navigating through student life at the University.

"With more than 6000 postgraduate and Honours students currently at the University of Adelaide, that is a phenomenal effort by staff. We thank them for the quality of their work and for contributing to the quality of postgraduate experience at the University."
