For the University of Otago to achieve its vision as a research-led university with an international reputation for excellence it must maintain a level of academic discipline and achievement that is respected world-wide. The manner in which the University of Otago bestows academic titles must be of sufficient rigour to ensure that the holder of that title is able to command the respect of their international peers. The contribution of the individual academic to the quality of research and the graduates produced by the University will provide the basis on which both their and the University's reputation will be judged. Equally it is important that the University has the processes in place to support the academic development of its own staff.
