Suffolk Salutes: Celebrating Alumni Excellence

University of Suffolk Alumni have gone on to achieve incredible things. From exciting careers to impactful research to making a difference in their local communities, our Alumni continue to demonstrate the transformative power of education.

We want to celebrate their achievements while also fostering a sense of belonging on our Ipswich campus. We will be celebrating a handful of our outstanding Alumni by placing commemorative plaques outside teaching rooms.

Playfully inspired by English Heritage’s London Blue Plaques scheme, which links people and place to heritage and culture, the University of Suffolk’s own campaign aims to highlight the students who pass through our doors and whose lives have been transformed through education.

Plaques will be awarded in celebration of individuals or groups that have demonstrated at least two of the criteria below. If you would like to nominate a member of our Alumni community who meets the criteria, please see below to begin your nomination.

The criteria are:

  • Remarkable demonstration of compassion, kindness or heroism
  • Outstanding contribution to the educational, cultural or economic well-being of society and/or the issues facing society today (such as equality, diversity and environmental sustainability)
  • Outstanding contribution to, and impact on, the University’s reputation and the wider life of the University community (such as through innovation or social responsibility)
