About the Academic Division

The Academic Division has been running an "Excellence Initiative” since 2012.  The Initiative is for all administrative staff in the University's Academic Schools and Centres and the Faculties Support Office and is aimed at encouraging the sharing of good practice across the different Schools and Faculties, and enhancing  and above all celebrating  the service delivered by administrative staff  to students and academics as well as to other professional colleagues. 

Service Excellence” was chosen as the first enhancement theme for this Initiative and a series of events were organised during 2012 which encouraged units to identify projects which would best meet the specific needs of their own student and staff population. 
This successful stage of the Initiative was shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2013 in the Outstanding Departmental Administrative Team category.

The current enhancement theme of the Initiative is titled “Excellence though Partnerships” : and it aims to strengthen relationships and build new partnerships between administrative, student and academic communities across Schools, Faculties and central Professional Services.
