Honorary Degree Committee
Charge and Membership
Honorary degrees are awarded annually (with occasional exceptions) to individuals who have achieved distinction in scholarship, creative activities, professional pursuits, business, governmental, civic affairs, or in service to Ohio University.
While candidates from any field will be considered, persons who have attained broad recognition in education rank high among potential nominees. Outstanding benefactors of the University or distinguished alumni are also among those to be given special attention.
The Committee solicits nominations and biographical information from the university community. After screening nominees, the Committee recommends candidates to the President who, in turn, forwards a final list to the Board of Trustees for ratification.
While nominations may be submitted at any time, the Committee normally completes its deliberations in May for the next academic year.
This Committee reports to the President.
