Honorary Degrees

An honorary degree is the highest honour the University can bestow. Acceptance of an honorary degree by a candidate brings honour to both the recipient and the university.  Honorary degrees are awarded to outstanding individuals who have made a worthy and unique contribution.

Nominations for honorary degree recipients are accepted year-round. Due to a large number of approved honorary degree recipients, the honorary degrees committee will not meet again to consider new nominations until 2019.
