On October 15 2015, the La Trobe Student Union (LTSU) held its award night in the Odeon Theatre at Bundoora. This is a very special event that celebrates the efforts of clubs, societies and individuals on campus deserving of recognition.

In 2015, the LTSU staged a new award, the Research Supervisor Award - an award designed to recognise an academic who has shown exceptional dedication to the student learning experience for research students, as nominated by students and judged by a selection panel of Graduate Research School representatives.

As an affiliate of the La Trobe Student Union, the School of Education Research Society (SOERS) nominated Dr Mike Brown from the School of Education, a teacher and research supervisor to many in the Society of whom is held in high regard - who subsequently won this prestigious award.

Congratulations Dr Mike Brown!
