Alumni Awards finalists

Congratulations to the 2023 Alumni Awards finalists!

With over 270,000 alumni globally, the Victoria University (VU) Alumni Awards recognise those alumni who are making a powerful and positive difference in our community – and our world.

We’ve had another wonderful response this year, with nominations from a range of disciplines that reflect the passion, dedication, and resilience of our VU alumni. All our nominees are truly amazing and we couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of them. We are thrilled to share with you the finalists for our 2023 Alumni Awards.

These remarkable finalists have excelled in their chosen careers and are shaping the world around them. Victoria University is built on the successes of our alumni and we are proud of the contribution these finalists are making to the west of Melbourne, to our nation and on the global stage.
