Silver award medal

The Strathclyde Medals


The Strathclyde Medals recognise people who have made an important contribution to the University values in their work, relationships and achievements.


Over the last four years, we have worked together to build on our University values in order to reflect who we are, how we work, what we believe in and what we stand for.

There is no doubt that our values – People-Oriented, Bold, Innovative, Collaborative and Ambitious - are playing a critical role in fostering a working environment which is taking us to the next level of performance and achievement and reinforcing Strathclyde’s position as a leading University.

Last year, you nominated members of staff who had made important contributions through demonstrating and 'living' the University values in their work, relationships and achievements.

We were delighted with the high calibre and the number of nominations received (48 individual and 41 team nominations) and saw this as a clear sign of the thriving and successful organisation which Strathclyde is.

Thirteen individual and eight team Awards were presented at the most recent Strathclyde Medals Ceremony in September 2018.

Nominations for the 2019 awards will be invited early 2019

The Medal Awards are to recognise individual people or teams at Strathclyde who consistently demonstrate the University’s values in their work and relationships and we are keen to receive nominations from across the University community.

Please think about staff with whom you interact and who you believe exemplify the Strathclyde values in their interactions, relationships and commitment to excellence.

Nominations for the 2019 awards can be made using the nomination form. For questions or further information please contact
