Past Recipients

Honorary Degrees, higher education’s most prestigious recognition, are reserved for eminent individuals with national or international reputations. Recipients are typically leading scholars, discoverers, inventors, authors, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, social activists, and leaders in politics or government. Occasionally, honorary degrees are awarded to people who have rendered lifelong service to the university through board membership, volunteerism, or major financial contributions.
