Above and Beyond in 2020 is a one-off award scheme that seeks to recognise and acknowledge the remarkable achievements of UQ staff pivoting to support students’ learning under unprecedented circumstances in Semester 1 2020.

As COVID-19 and ever-changing Public Health guidelines required us to work and learn from home, UQ’s teachers worked tirelessly to ensure that learning experiences, for which the University is renowned, were impacted as little as possible.

In spirit, this Award endeavours to acknowledge as many UQ staff as are nominated. The names of all supported nominees for this award will be publicly displayed in an Honour Roll. The Honour Roll will be made available online and as a physical artefact. Additionally, all listed on the Above and Beyond In 2020 Honour Roll will receive a letter acknowledging their achievement and thanking them for their contributions from the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic).

The Above and Beyond in 2020 Honour Roll will be published on 8 December 2020.
