The Vice-Chancellor’s Career Achievement Award formally recognises a recipient’s outstanding leadership, significant contributions, and sustained excellence in learning and teaching, research, mentorship and/or service at Victoria University and the communities we serve. This may be a new innovation, new knowledge, or ways to improve professional practice deemed to be above and beyond the everyday with a long lasting impact.
