Nominations for award of UCL Honorary Degrees and Honorary Fellowships in 2016
24 June 2015
Nominations are now invited for award in 2016 of UCL Honorary Degrees and Honorary Fellowships.
Please read the proposed revised criteria for these awards. These incorporate amendments that have been proposed by the Honorary Degrees and Fellowships Committee with the aim of clarifying the distinction between Honorary Degrees and Honorary Fellowships for future conferrals of these awards and increasing the diversity of nominations through the extension of nomination rights to all members of the UCL community.
It is expected that recipients of UCL Honorary Degrees
and Honorary Fellowships will normally have, or have had, a close association
with UCL, although for recipients of Honorary Degrees, this requirement may be
balanced in certain cases by scholarly or intellectual excellence that is
linked to UCL's ethos and values.
In keeping with UCL's commitment to equality and diversity, the Honorary Degrees and Fellowships Committee would wish to invite members of the UCL community to give particular consideration to women and black and minority ethnic candidates for these awards.
