An honorary degree is the highest honour the university can bestow. Acceptance of an honorary degree by a candidate brings honour to both the recipient and the University. 

Honorary degrees are considered by the Senate Honorary Degrees Committee, approved by Senate, and awarded at Convocation.


Nominations for honorary degree recipients are accepted year-round and will be reviewed by the Senate honorary degrees committee.

The deadline to submit nominations for the next meeting of the committee is September 13, 2024.
