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 international distinction to be Brockington Visitors. Visitors should be drawn from a wide spectrum of backgrounds. Brockington Visitors are expected to deliver a public lecture and to be available during the visit to meet formally and informally with appropriate segments of the Queen's and Kingston communities.

Successful applicants will make all arrangements for the visits and be responsible for the reception of the Brockington Visitors while on campus. After the visits, 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 Visitors.

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 Visitors.
