Summary of Changes from Previous Version

This is the second version of the Honorary Appointments Procedure published on the University’s new Policy Management System, the Guide (Mark II). This version:

a. streamlines the process for making honorary appointments

b. expands the range of people who can nominate an Honorary Appointment to the Vice-Chancellor to include DVCs (in addition to Faculty Executive Deans and the Honorary Appointments Committee), and

c. delineates the Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Fellows Program.



On 19 October 2016, an administrative amendment was made to the Procedure reinstalling the definition of 'adjunct' that was previously included in the revoked Regulation 3.1(6) – Honorary Appointments.
