Widening Participation Award

Dr Michelle Harrison (dept. of French) and Maria Guarnieri (dept. of Italian) were announced at the recently held Widening Participation Summit as one of the inaugural winners of the University of Leicester’s Widening Participation Award. Professor Mark Peel, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Student Experience) announced the award stating:

'This is in recognition of your strong commitment to engaging young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in modern languages, as shown by your work in delivering an innovative programme of activities that creatively introduce young people to a wide range of modern languages'.

This award reflects the excellent contribution that Maria and Michelle have made to the School and the University through the widening participation activities (including masterclasses and summer school sessions) that they have run so effectively.
