Nominate honorary degree recipients for 2013 Commencement

The Honorary Degree Committee is soliciting nominations for 2013 Commencement and beyond with a submissions deadline of Nov. 10.

The committee reviews nominations from the Emory community and recommends a slate of candidates for consideration for an honorary degree, which is bestowed at Commencement. See a list of recent honorary degree recipients.

Nominations of individuals from diverse demographic backgrounds are encouraged.

Those who have spent the greatest part of their careers as members of the Emory faculty or administration or those currently serving in U.S. elective office are not considered, except under extraordinary conditions.

However, the committee will consider nominations of people associated with Emory as alumni, distinguished visiting faculty or other similar circumstances.

The criteria for awarding of an honorary degree; the ways to submit nominations; and what the nominating letter should include can be found at the Office of the Secretary.

All nominations are confidential.
