    Here are some preliminary suggestions. Others may have better ideas.

    the honored title ( don't like 'honored', but can't think of a more appropriate word, Perhaps someone else will help) I think it's a degree rather than a title.

    DOCTOR HONORIS CAUSA
    in the field of f Fine Arts

    for achievements in the development of fine art and graphic design at/on an international scale.

    The proposal submitted by the Dean of the Faculty of Art and Design was discussed and approved by the Scientific Council *of the Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in _______________ on March 23rd, 2000.
    You might also Consider something like

    By Virtue of/In Accordance with the Regulations/Charter of the University and on the Recommendation of the Dean of the Faculty of Art and design as approved by the University Scientific (Science?) Council,

    The Senate/Trustees/Council of the University of XY do hereby confer the title of

    Doctor (honoris causa)

    on/upon


    Professor Mike Brown

    for achievements in the development of fine art and graphic design at/on an international scale.


    In witness whereof we the undersigned have affixed to this degree our several signatures and the Common Seal of the University

    That is one of the things http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ is about. We are all here because we are interested in the English language and/or in the teaching/learning of it. Our 'benefits' include the satisfaction of (1) helping others, and (2) learning something new almost every time we sign in. The order of #1 and #2 may be reversed for some people. That is not important. We are free to give or take. Many of us gain by doing both.

    I have my doubts about teachers who think they have nothing to learn.
