Engagement Australia is pleased to launch the 2021 Engagement Australia Excellence Awards. This is the second year of the Engagement Australia Excellence Awards, which transitioned in 2020 from the Business-Higher Education Round Table (BHERT) Awards and attracted a record 124 submissions from 35 universities across Australia and New Zealand.
Engagement Australia Chair and President, Professor Jim Nyland said the awards identify and celebrate the transformative engagement activities undertaken by universities that demonstrate far-reaching impact and innovation in Australia and New Zealand.
“There has never been a more important time for Australian universities to become deeply engaged with their communities, and to align these transformational operations with their strategic priorities – from research and industry engagement to the health and well-being of the communities in which they serve,” Prof Nyland said.
Applications close 5pm AEST 4 August 2021
