The University Senate’s Committee on Honorary Degrees is seeking nominations for recipients of degrees to be conferred in the 2007 Commencement ceremony.

Criteria for an Emory honorary degree include:
• achievement of the highest distinction in the field of learning, the arts, the professions or public service, especially in those achievements that manifest or contribute to the life of the mind;
• compelling reasons why it would be fitting for Emory to honor the nominee;
• special significance the honor might have to the individual being recognized; and
• appropriateness of recognition at Commencement, before a general audience of students, family members and friends.

Except under extraordinary circumstances, persons who have spent the greater part of their careers as Emory faculty or administrators will not be considered. The committee will, however, consider nominations of persons otherwise associated with Emory (alumni, trustees, visiting faculty, etc.). The committee encourages nominations of women and members of ethnic minorities.

The deadline for nominations for 2007 recipients is Dec. 16. Nominations may be e-mailed to honorarydegrees@emory.edu or sent to Honorary Degree Nominations at mailstop #1000/001/1AN.
ReservesDirect workshop set for Dec. 14.

Features of ReservesDirect, a course materials management program, will be highlighted at Dec. 14 workshop at 10:30 a.m. in room 215 of Woodruff Library. To sign up, call 404-727-6867.
