Distinguished University Professors 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.”
 
The Distinguished University Professor Advisory Committee shall meet once each year to consider all nominations submitted, except those deemed by the Provost to be incomplete, and shall make a recommendation to the Principal in respect of which nominees, if any, should be designated as Distinguished University Professor.  The Provost shall Chair the Committee.
 

For more information on the Program, including the Honorific Names and Committee members, please visit the Principal's Priorities and Initiatives site.
