Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship


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 distinction to be Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecturers. The purpose of the Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship is to promote the understanding and appreciation of the supreme importance of the dignity, freedom and responsibility of the individual person in human society. Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecturers 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 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecturers 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 Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecturers.

Every five years, the Provost’s Advisory Committee for the Promotion of the Arts will review the terms of reference of the Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship and, as necessary, make recommendations that will ensure that the lectureship best serves the needs of the Queen's community. The advisory committee will report annually to the Senate on the Chancellor Dunning Trust Lectureship, indicating how the income of the Dunning endowment was spent and the activities of the Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecturers.
