Honorary Appointments

The University has in place a procedure for granting honorary titles, the purpose of which is to acknowledge a voluntary, unpaid contribution to a School’s or the University’s activities. The procedure involves approval by the Senate on the recommendation of a Head of School, provided that some criteria are met, and these are outlined here.

The responsibility for due diligence on nominees for these appointments rests with the Head of School. Schools are required to submit a CV along with their nomination to the Governance Office who will arrange for submission to Senate for approval. Honorary titles are normally awarded for a period of between 1 and 3 years but can be extended at the request of the School.

Senate meets on four occasions during the year, and nominations can be submitted to each meeting. Nominations should be received by the Governance Office at least 10 working days before the date of the Senate. The nomination form can be found here (please note, this form is only available for Bangor University staff).

If you have any enquiries regarding the Honorary Appointment process, please contact Sera Whitley in the Governance Office.
