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 for 2018 are now closed. Please visit our Commencement site to learn about Drew’s exercises on May 12, 2018. Thank you.
