Please note that nominations for Honorary Doctorates and Chancellor's Medals close Friday 3 August.
Nominations may only be submitted by members of the Academic Board or Senate. Other members of the University community who have suggestions for nominations should discuss their proposals with a member of the Board or the Senate. (Details of the membership of these bodies are available here and here).
Nominations must be in writing in the approved proforma (Honorary Degrees and Chancellor's Medal Nomination Form) and should include at least the following:
- A statement of the category/ies in which the proposed award fits
- Background information about the proposed awardee, with, if possible, details of qualifications and career history (this may be in the form of a CV if such is available)
- A draft citation for the award of the honorary doctorate setting out succinctly (in no more than 450 words) the particular achievements/contributions which the proposer sees as warranting the award. (Samples of citations used at previous Graduation ceremonies are available on request.)
- More information can be found here
A number of people make outstanding contributions to the University in a variety of ways. It is the wish of the Senate that the contributions of these people should be recognised through the award of a Chancellor’s Medal. Decisions on awarding of the medals will be made in accordance with the guidelines appended to Statute 14: Granting and Conferring of Degrees and Diplomas. You can find the guidelines here.
Nominations for both awards should be sent to Deirdre de Souza by FRIDAY, 3 AUGUST 2018. Deirdre can be contacted on 6488 2450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
