Provost Professor Max Lu and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Joanne Wright hosted the evening where strategy expert Dr Lance Newey was awarded a UQ Citation for his Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning, and lecturer in marketing Dr Nicole Hartley was recognised with a commendation for her Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.
