Honorary Degrees

In conferring honorary degrees the University seeks to honour individuals whose accomplishments demonstrate a standard of excellence we hope will inspire our graduates. The Committee considers candidates from a broad range of categories including achievements in the arts and sciences, business, public service, professions, voluntary service in the community at large, or service of long-standing or exceptional merit to the University. The Committee, from time to time, may recommend those whose outstanding contributions to their fields or to society have not yet been widely recognized.
