A Higher Education Academy Award to our Director of Graduate Studies for his ‘outstanding scholarly contribution’ to learning and teaching practice.

For the last five years the Higher Education Academy subject-centre Sociology, Anthropology and Politics (C-SAP) has made Director’s Recognition Awards to colleagues who have impacted on learning and teaching practice and policy nationally.

Dr David Mills, the department’s Director of Graduate Studies, has received the Director’s Recognition Award for Scholarly Contribution. This was in recognition of his ‘outstanding scholarly contribution to C-SAP through his publications and work with Anthropologists across the UK’.

C-SAP was founded in 2000, along with 24 other disciplinary subject centres, supporting the professional development of disciplinary academics and enhancing the learning experience for all students. This is its last year, and its work will be taken forward within the new unified Higher Education Academy.

The award was presented to David at an Awards ceremony on the 6th September 2011.
