Another award: Excellence in Student Experience
CUBO (College and University Business Officers) is the professional association for senior managers in higher education whose responsibilities include the strategic planning, management, administration and development of a university's residential portfolio, catering and retail operations, and commercial income generation from business and leisure tourism, including the management of year-round conference and training centres.
Last night, at the CUBO conference dinner, the organisation handed out its first annual awards, where our Residential and Commercial Services won the category called ‘Innovation Award for Excellence in Student Experience’ with its Arts in the Village programme of student activities.
The awards were sponsored by ULiving (a consortium made up of Bouygues Development and not-for-profit accommodation operator Derwent Living) and in partnership with University Business Magazine. The awards dinner was held at the Playfair Library at Edinburgh University.
