Nominations for Honorary Degrees

The Honorary Degrees Subcommittee of the Board of Trustees is excited to begin the process to select this year’s honorary degree recipients. Honorary degrees are awarded at Commencement in May and previous recipients can be found here.

We invite you to nominate candidates who you think would merit an honorary degree from Drew, especially those who are alums of our three schools. The nomination form can be found below.

The Subcommittee will consider nominations in the context of Drew’s mission of education, scholarship and service. Honorees will be selected based on their record of advancing their chosen field in significant ways and/or of having made distinguished contributions to society in areas such as business, public service and government, humanitarian work, law and the arts. Noteworthy contributions to the mission of Drew will also be considered as an additional qualification.

Please submit your nominations no later than Wednesday, November 22. Nominations will be reviewed during meetings of the Board of Trustees.
