Brockington Visitorship


The Provost’s Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts is responsible for annually seeking and adjudicating proposals from members of the Queen's community to invite persons of distinction to be Brockington Visitors. Visitors should be drawn from a wide spectrum of backgrounds. The terms of reference for the Brockington Visitorship were expanded in March 2019. Going forward, the annual income from the endowment can be used to cover the expenses relating to: public lectures; performances, speaker series, scholarly events, residencies, exhibitions and media presentations.  Preference will be given to proposals that support a public lecture.

Successful applicants will make all arrangements for the visits and be responsible for the reception of the Brockington Visitor(s) while on campus. After the visit, the hosts will report to the Provost's Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts on the expenditure of the allotted funds and on the activities of the Brockington Visitor(s).

Every five years, the Provost’s Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts will review the terms of reference of the Brockington Visitorship and, as necessary, make recommendations that will ensure that the Visitorship best serves the needs of the Queen's community. The advisory committee will report annually to the Senate on the Brockington Visitorship, indicating how the income of the Brockington endowment was spent and the activities of the Brockington Visitor(s).
