Mrs Linda Gray has been awarded an Individual Service Excellence Award for her exceptional contribution to student support, both within the Department and more widely in the University.

At the presentation event, which was hosted by Professor Paul White, PVC for Learning and Teaching, Linda was introduced as having "received nominations from both students and staff referring to her outstanding levels of student support. Her enthusiasm, her inspirational role to others, the care she demonstrates for students, her contribution to her own department and the wider University -- these qualities have all been appreciated. As one person put it: 'In my opinion she is an example of how a tutor should help a student, how an academic should inspire her pupils and how a person should respond to other people's problems'."
