Honorary Titles are titles awarded by the institution to individuals who are not employed by the institution (with the exception of the category of Honorary Professor) but who are associated with the University in other ways in a mutually beneficial relationship. The range of titles, criteria for appointment, benefits and conditions associated with appointments are outlined in the Framework document below.
Heads of Departments can motivate for the appointment of individuals in terms of this framework. Once the appointment is approved by Senate, the HR Division will write to the relevant individual indicating the appointment. Thereafter, the individual will be able to access certain facilities of the institution.
Heads of Departments requiring further information should contact the Director: Human Resources.
