Commendations for SLS at Stephen Fry Public Engagement Awards

As part of the University of Dundee’s Celebrating our Public Engagement event, the University crowned the latest winners of the Stephen Fry Awards for Excellence in Public Engagement.

The awards celebrate the people and projects that engage with wider audiences, and the benefits they bring to society. The winners across the three categories were announced by former Rector Stephen Fry:

School Prizes presented at Review of the Year 2020

Review of the Year 2020 took place virtually today with the Dean, Inke Nathke sharing the highlights of activity within the School from 2020 which was dominated by the coronavirus pandemic. The Review included the presentation of the annual School prizes, many were awarded in recognition of how many members of our School community worked so hard to ensure the School could still undertake its work while ensuring the safety for all. The People’s Award, the newly established Dean’s Commendation and Merit Award and PiCLS Best Mentor Award recognised some of those people.
