It's nice to be nominated thrice

The shortlists have been announced for the snappily named Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2010 – and the University of Leicester is a contender in three categories.

We’re up for Outstanding Student Admissions Team, based on the work of our Student Recruitment, International Office and Admissions team, which includes links with local schools and colleges and widening participation in higher education to under-represented groups.

IT Services are shortlisted for Outstanding ICT Team (IT? ICT? Same difference…) based on their "robust and secure service" and their integration with overall University strategies. And Museum Studies are among the nominees for Outstanding Departmental Administration Team for "demonstrating evidence of excellent communication."

The golden envelopes containing the winners’ names will be torn open at a posh ceremony in London on 17 June.

NB. These awards are separate to the Times Higher Education Awards, where we won University of the Year a couple of years ago and Outstanding Student Support last year.
