The University of Sydney seeks to promote, recognise and reward teaching excellence, and the systems that support teaching excellence, through four categories of Vice-Chancellor's Awards. Individuals or teams who receive an award are given $10,000 and, in some cases, the opportunity to be nominated for national awards.
