Staff and students recognised at CEAS Social Responsibility Awards
The School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science's (CEAS) annual Social Responsibility Awards have been distributed during the School's end-of-year celebration barbecue.
These awards recognise commitments made to social responsibility by both staff and students across the School, from volunteering and wellbeing events to environmental research. The success of the awards demonstrates not only a shift of focus in the School towards social responsibility, but that staff within it are working hard to lead more responsible lives and help others.
A total of ten winners were recognised at the event on Wednesday, 17 July 2019. They were nominated across a series of categories by peers throughout the School.
The winners were:
Rachana Halasebele - Outstanding contribution to volunteering (student)
Abdullatif Alfutimie - Outstanding contribution to volunteering (staff)
Perpetual Idehen - Outstanding public engagement / widening participation in the field of science and engineering (student)
Charlie Wand - Outstanding public engagement / widening participation in the field of science and engineering (staff)
Peter Gardner - Outstanding benefit to society through research (staff)
Head of School Office - Excellent contribution to equality, diversity, wellbeing and/or charitable initiatives (staff)

This is the second year that we have given out the awards and it really helps the School to identify individuals and groups to put forward for the FSE Better World Awards and the University's Making a Difference Awards.
I've been amazed by the breadth and diversity of all the good things our staff and students engage with alongside their 'day job' and really congratulate all winners and nominees on their dedication to some wonderful causes that they feel passionate about.
The awards really do give us an opportunity to shout out to the University how much as a School we engage with social responsibility. Long may it continue and grow!
We would like to congratulate all of our winners, and we hope that their contributions to social responsibility only grow in the future.
