The University of Melbourne has a national and international reputation for excellence thanks to a community of highly committed staff. Each year the University celebrates the work of staff at the university through the Melbourne Excellence Awards. These awards recognise the outstanding achievements of academic and professional staff in the key areas of research, teaching, engagement, professional excellence and strategic priorities.
- The Melbourne Research Excellence Awards, which recognise the outstanding achievements of academic staff in the areas of graduate researcher supervision, team-based research programs and industry-engaged research
- The Melbourne Teaching Excellence Awards, which celebrate excellence in contributions to teaching and student learning
- The Melbourne Engagement Excellence Awards, which recognise the achievements of staff in advancing public value contributions and the development and delivery of engaged teaching and research.
The integral work of professional staff is also recognised through the Melbourne Professional Excellence Awards.
Finally, the Melbourne Strategic Priorities Excellence Awards recognise excellence and innovation in priority areas for the University, including internationalising the student experience, enhancing the University's international research profile and impact through key research initiatives, facilitating diversity, social inclusion and equity and providing outstanding mentoring to University colleagues.
Each award includes a trophy and a grant of $10,000. The Bronwyn Jane Adams Memorial and Cornelius Regan Trust Awards are valued at $5,000 each. An award ceremony is held later in the year to acknowledge and celebrate recipients’ success in all University of Melbourne Excellence Awards.
