The Vice- Chancellor's Award for Reconciliation for students 2016 has been awarded to ANUSA President Benjamin Gill for his outstanding contribution to advancing reconciliation at ANU.
ANU Chancellor Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC presented the award at the Annual ANU Reconciliation Lecture.
Professor Evans said Ben had played an extraordinarily constructive role around reconciliation on campus over the past two years.
"Ben has mentored and supported the ANUSA Indigenous officers in an exemplary way," said Professor Evans.
"He has also been a strong advocate for Indigenous events on campus and a major force in getting ANUSA and PARSA to work effectively together in this space."
Tjabal Indigenous Higher Education Centre Director Anne Martin said he was a very worthy recipient.
"Ben works diligently in his role as President of ANUSA and has forged great relationships with both students and staff across the ANU in a very respectful manner," she said.
