College staff recognition awards

Imperial is committed to building a supportive, inclusive and highly motivated staff community across all disciplines, functions and activities. As part of this commitment, we have a number of different staff award schemes in place in order to recognise and celebrate the achievements and hard work of staff at the College. 

  • President's Awards for Excellence in Culture & Community, Education, Research, and Societal Engagement
  • Julia Higgins Medal and Awards
  • Provost's Awards for Excellence in Health and Safety
  • Provost's Awards for Excellence in Animal Research
  • Imperial Garden Party 

These awards are for all staff, at all levels, across research, teaching and professional services roles, who have shown outstanding commitment and demonstrated a valuable contribution to the College's mission.

On Tuesday 16 June, our 2020 award winners and guests joined a virtual celebration to congratulate all of our winners and announce our medallists in advance of getting together in person at the annual Garden Party next year. You can see our 2020 winners in the video below:

Nominations are made by staff and students from across the College with the winners of each award category decided by selection panels. Those awardees judged to have made particularly exceptional contributions within each category are selected to receive the President’s Medal.

Nominations for 2021 will open in December 2020.
