Welcome to the Horizons University Honorary Professor Project (HPP)!
Are you a confirmed teacher (PhD or Doctorate holder) with academic track record willing to engage in distance education and participate actively in the development of Horizons University while looking for new professional opportunities? Then the HPP is for you.
Commit your time and talent to Horizons University for one year, excel in the development of and dedication to the Horizons University community and curriculum, participate in the advancement of the quality of education to be nominated for the Honorary Professor title and rank.
Applicants should send their curriculum vitae and motivation letter to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the reasons of their application and detailing their motivation.
After one year of active participation in the Horizons University activities (course creation, online teaching, literature creation and publication, community development, colleague referral…), the title of Honorary Professor will be bestowed upon the nominees to honor their actions. The latter will be measured and quantified thanks to the Course Feedback Form filled out by students OR thanks to the Staff Evaluation Form. Eligible professors need to score a minimum of 90% positive answers in each Course Feedback Form or in the Staff Evaluation Form.
The names of new Honorary Professors will be announced in all Horizons University official communication supports.
The title and rank are honorary ones carrying no salary implications.
From then on, title and rank will be reviewable and renewable at the end of each year.
At the same time, after the first year and once the nominees are granted the honorary title and rank, they may also ask to participate, if such is their wish, in the activities of the University by signing the corresponding contract or agreement and falling under the applicable terms and conditions.
