As you know, the College has usually granted one or more honorary doctoral degrees as part of the spring Commencement ceremony. I am writing to invite suggestions for possible candidates for honorary degrees at our Spring 2017 Commencement. Recipients are typically individuals who have distinguished careers in the academy, the arts, or public service, and who have a connection or special relevance to the College. As in past years, nominations will be considered by an appointed faculty committee chaired by the Provost, which will forward its recommendations to the President.
Please submit any nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Monday, Dec. 5, 2016.
We look forward to receiving suggestions from the campus community.
