Distinguished University Professors Program

Terms of Reference for the Program

Queen’s University has created a new program to recognize and celebrate some of its top internationally-recognized researchers. The Distinguished University Professor program was recently approved by the Senate and it will be open to all individuals holding a full-time academic appointment at Queen’s.
 
Once a professor has been chosen for the designation, they will then have the opportunity to select from a list of approved honorific names to form part of their official title, which will be styled as “[Honorific Name] Distinguished University Professor.”
 
A small working group has been created to develop the long list of honorific names and will be reporting to Senate in the fall. 
 
Those in the Working Group wish to thank community members for their thoughts and feedback provided during the public consultation phase.
