Over 80 guests attended the awards in the Darwin Suite at Canterbury campus – the first time that teaching, research and innovation excellence have been celebrated at the same event.
The 25 award-winners were introduced by Deans of their Faculties and received their award from the University’s Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Karen Cox.
She said: ‘At a time when we are facing a huge range of demands, while working to provide an outstanding student experience and undertake cutting-edge research, this is an opportunity to come together and recognise what makes Kent great: excellence, collegiality, and a willingness to think differently.’
