Congratulations to Professor Karma Nabulsi (Balliol 1989) on winning the Inspiring Leader award in the Guardian’s University Awards 2017.
The award is for ‘a leader who has brought out the best in their team and achieved exceptional results. They champion innovation and collaboration, deliver real change, and inspire the higher education community.’
Professor Nabulsi is Associate Professor in Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford, and Fellow in Politics at St Edmund Hall. When she was shortlisted, the judges said of her: ‘Without her patience, dedication and commitment the experiences of numerous students at Oxford and elsewhere would have been immeasurably poorer. She avoids all self-celebration, but it is hard to imagine a more worthy recipient.’
