The University Senate’s Committee on Honorary
Degrees is seeking nominations for recipients of degrees to be conferred
in the 2007
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;
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
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 email@example.com or sent to Honorary
at mailstop #1000/001/1AN.
