Honorary Appointments

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 of appointment, benefits and conditions associated with appointments are outlined in the Framework document below:

Honorary Titles Framework

Heads of Departments can motivate for the appointment of individuals in terms of this framework. Once the appointment is ratified by Senate and Council, the DVC: R&D will write to the new honorary appointee indicating the process to follow to access certain facilities of the institution.

Nominations for Honorary Appointments can now be made on Rhodes' Online Submission Engine (ROSE). Follow the link below and selection ‘Honorary Appointment Nominations 2020’ from the list of application types. 


Please login as a Rhodes User using your Rhodes Single Sign On details. Nominations will be routed via ROSE to the approval steps (HOD where applicable, Dean and DVC) prior to going to the SENEX agenda.”
