Impact Business Buff Award winners 2023

These student-driven awards recognize members of the Leeds community who inspire students to pursue excellence in sustainability and social responsibility. 

Nominations for the 2024 CESR Impact Business Buff Awards are due by Tuesday, March 5th.

Nominate students and faculty who have made a difference in how you think about sustainability and social responsibility in the following categories:

  • a faculty member
  • a graduating student
  • a "rising star" student who is not graduating this year

Nominees must be either degree-seeking Leeds students or full-time Leeds faculty members. Faculty members may not win the award two years in a row.

Awards are given at the CESR End of Year Celebration which takes place each year in April. This year's celebration is on April 25th at 5:30 p.m.
