Student Association Teaching Award for Tom Smith

28 April 2022

Congratulations to Tom Smith who was awarded a 2022 Student Association Teaching Award for Outstanding Academic Mentorship, which “acknowledges the way a member of teaching staff influences students' overall development (both personally and academically)”. Tom’s student nomination describes him as having “always been responsive, keen, and encouraging, leaving space for me to make my own academic discoveries and pursue my own interests”. The nominator wrote that Tom “is always open-minded and conscious of the inequalities that are rife in academia” and “helped me to become the best academic community member as well as scholar”. Tom received the award alongside eight colleagues in other Student Association Award categories from across the University.
