Honorary Degree Nominations

Nominations for Honorary Degrees

The Honorary Degrees Subcommittee of the Board of Trustees selects honorary degree recipients based on nominations received. Honorary degrees are awarded at Commencement in May and previous recipients can be found here.

The Honorary Degrees Subcommittee considers nominations in the context of Drew’s mission of education, scholarship and service. Honorees are 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 are also considered as an additional qualification.

Nominations closed on Monday, January 31 and will be reviewed during meetings of the Board of Trustees in February. Thank you.
