Charlotte Frearson wins Public Engagement Award

Congratulations to Charlotte Frearson, the Institute Undergraduate Programme's Administrator, who has received a UCL Provost's Award for Public Engagement.

Charlotte received the award of 'Public Engager of the Year: Support Staff' in recognition of the major role she has played in development of public engagement activities at the Institute of Archaeology. Among other activities, she played a leading role in the development and organisation of many of the public aspects of the Institute's 75th Anniversary celebrations in 2012.

The awards panel were impressed by Charlotte's obvious enthusiasm for public engagement, not only supporting others at the Institute but in many cases carrying out some of the activities herself.

They indicated:

  • The central role that Charlotte has taken in the Institute's public engagament activities is impressive, and she is an ambassador for public engagement among her colleagues in the Institute of Archaeology and beyond.

Charlotte received her prize at a special ceremony at UCL last week. View images»
