Conferral of Academic Titles
In 2004 the University limited the use of honorary academic titles to either "Conjoint" or "Visitor". Following a review, the University has now revised its policy and procedure for the conferral of academic titles at UNSW effective from 2 November 2010.
A revised Policy on Conferring Academic Titles and Procedure for Conferring Academic Titles are available on the Governance Support Unit website:
Conferring Academic Titles Policy
Conferring Academic Titles Procedure
Specific points to note include:
- The re-introduction of the title "adjunct" and the introduction of a separate "Honorary academic" title for retired academic staff from UNSW (or another university)
- A table that sets out the background of the recipient of each of the conferred titles and the delegated authority for approval of each title
Applications to confer a title on existing Visiting or Conjoint appointment holders will normally be restricted to the end of the current appointment.
