What is this degree for?
Apparently the degree will be awarded in "recognition of his services to the University community".
From our experiences at the University and from contact with Trevor Waring, this degree is rewarding him for standing by, knowing that whistleblowing and bullying was taking place.
Standing by and not taking any action is unforgivable
standing by and not taking action is especially unforgivable if
- you are the Chancellor
- you are a psychologist
- you have practised as a psychologist for 40 years
- you provide anti-bullying training to companies.
Sorry, Trevor, we are NOT able to offer our congratulations to you for this honorary degree.
