Types of Academic visitors:
- Visiting Professor
- Guest Lecturer
- Research Award Recipient
- Self-Funded Researcher
- Guest Speaker
There are several kinds of Academic visitors, most of whom come on campus to do research or speak, and they require a formal invitation letter which outlines the terms of their stay.
To ensure the health and safety of visitors, departments are required to follow the Visitor Health and Safety Standard.
When inviting or hosting anyone under the above categories contact your HR Advisor to initiate the invitation letter and if applicable, the required immigration process.
When Academic visitors will be accessing laboratories, working with animals or attending field activities they are required to sign a waiver. This is very important to ensure that we mitigate risk to the University.
