Honorary degree nominations
Nomination criteria include extraordinary excellence and character as demonstrated by notable achievement in a field of learning, the arts, the professions or public service. Nominations should cite compelling reasons why it would be especially fitting for Emory to honor the nominees.
Nominations of women and minority candidates are also particularly encouraged.
The committee also will accept nominations of Emory alumni, trustees or
distinguished visiting faculty.
Except in extraordinary circumstances, those who have spent the greater
part of their careers as Emory faculty members or administrators will
not be considered.
Nominations should include a detailed nominating letter, a curriculum
vitae or entry from Whos Who and a supporting letter. Nominations
should be sent to Gary Hauk, Secretary of the University, 407 Administration.
Because nominations must be approved by President Bill Chace and the
Board of Trustees before an invitation can be extended to receive an honorary
degree, Hauk advises those making nominations not to discuss them with
potential candidates, and that all deliberations about honorary degrees
should be kept confidential.
Panel to discuss religion,
Sponsored by the Universitys Working Group on Religion and Conflict,
the panel will address current terrorist situations from three religious
perspectives: Islam, Judaism and Christianity.
Panelists include: Imam Ibrahim Pascha, Atlanta Masjid of Al Islam and
Michael Berger, The Revs. Mary Elizabeth Moore and Theophus Smith, and
Richard Martin, all of Emory; Rabbi Leila Berner, Congregation Bet Mishpachah
and George Washington University; Ebrahim Moosa, Duke University.
The event is open to the public and admission is free.
