Robert Gordon University Students’ Union has once again been shortlisted for four awards at the National Union of Students Scotland Awards for 2017. RGU:Union received the highest number in the shortlist, being nominated for University Students’ Association of the Year, Officer Team of the Year, Student Opportunities Award and Campaigns Award.

The shortlist was announced on Wednesday 22nd February with twelve college and university associations shortlisted for the national awards. RGU:Union received the highest number of nominations of any university previously in 2016, where they won the title of Campaign of the Year for the Safe Taxi Scheme.

In addition for being nominated for outstanding achievements over the year for the Union and the elected Officers, RGU Go Green’s projects have been shortlisted for the titles. The nomination for the Campaign Award focuses on the launch of RGU’s Zero Waste Community Café, which is the first of its kind in Scotland.

Edward Pollock, student President of Communication and Democracy at RGU:Union said, “This year has been incredibly busy for RGU:Union. With big changes in the university, we have worked hard to represent student’s views and launch ground-breaking new projects for new students, such as the Zero Waste Café, Academic Calendar Review and Live Right Campaign. I am incredibly proud to see that once again the work of our team has been recognised and I really hope that these amazing projects can be recognised.”

When announcing the shortlist, Vonnie Sandlan, President of NUS Scotland said, “[..] This is the part of my job that is most exciting, that is, seeing [Students’ Unions] being recognised for all the work you have done to make students’ lives better, make students experiences stronger and that our students are able to get the absolute best out of their education.” 

The winners shall be announced at the NUS Scotland Conference on Friday 24th March 2017 in Dundee. The full shortlist can be found at: http://nusawards.unioncloud.org/nus-scotland/new-and-noteworthy/2017-shortlist-announced
