STAR Awards are RGU:Union's student-led staff award scheme that seeks to celebrate Support and Teaching staff with Appreciation and Recognition. The awards are a chance for students to thank the staff which work so hard to support them and for staff to get recognition from their students. The awards are open to teaching staff and support staff all across the university from lecturers, tutors, technicians, cleaners, library staff, and many more. The awards were renamed in 2016 from 'I Love My Lecturer' awards to 'STAR Awards' to celebrate the amazing work of many non-teaching staff.

Our Stars Campaign

We all know a special staff member who goes above and beyond for us. Along with awarding them each year, RGU:Union wants to make sure that staff members know that they are 'our stars' all year round. The #OurStars campaign seeks to celebrate the amazing staff at RGU all throughout the year. Students are invited to fill out the form below anytime they feel a staff member has done an amazing job. Students can write a message of thanks and this will be sent to the staff member (either with the students name or annoymously) by RGU:Union. The purpose of 'Our Stars' is to build a positive community of respect between staff and students and to improve the culture of partnership and appreciation as without hard working staff, students would not be able to achieve on their course.
