Double success for Sheffield University

Have your say

Staff at Sheffield University are celebrating a double success after winning two accolades at the prestigious Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards.

Known as THELMAs, the awards recognise the best in administrative excellence.

Members of the university’s Library Services and the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Managers’ Group were commended for their hard work after winning the awards for Outstanding Library Team and Outstanding Departmental Administration Team.

By scooping two awards Sheffield led the way at the ceremony, which was hosted by comedian and actor Rob Brydon.

The Library Service was recognised for the exceptional improvement in student satisfaction - delivered by ‘putting the student experience at the heart of everything it does’.

Projects have included continued investment in the Information Commons complex and the recent major refurbishment of the Health Sciences Library to improve student learning spaces.

University librarian Martin Lewis said: “Winning this award is great news for the 180 staff of our university library. They are a terrific team - they combine innovation with a passionate commitment to our students and researchers.

“This is clear from our excellent performance in two key recent national student satisfaction surveys.”
