Anglia Ruskin University nominated in two categories for national awards
Drama lecturer Dr Gianna Bouchard has been nominated for an award for going the extra mile for her students – and Anglia Ruskin University as a whole could be in line for recognition.
It is the first year Anglia Ruskin has entered the WOW awards, which aim to raise standards of customer service by recognising staff and organisations that go out of their way to be helpful.
Dr Bouchard, Principal Lecturer in Drama and Course Group Leader for Music and Performing Arts at Anglia Ruskin, has been nominated in the WOW! That’s Really Special category.
Anglia Ruskin University has been shortlisted for Best Newcomer alongside Balfour Beatty, Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Inverclyde Leisure and South Devon Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.
A testimony from Victoria Bell, one of Dr Bouchard’s students, said:
Dr Bouchard said:
Judging will take place on Monday, 8 September before award winners are named at a gala ceremony at the Brewery, East London on 24 November.
In 2009, Dr Bouchard received a Vice Chancellor’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Student Experience at Anglia Ruskin. Last year, she was nominated for a Made a Difference Award by the Students’ Union.
