Honorary Degree Call for Nominations

Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree

The Senate of the University of Northern British Columbia invites nominations for its most distinguished public award, the Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree.

The award of an Honorary Degree is recognition by the University of Northern British Columbia of distinguished achievement in scholarship, research, teaching, creative arts, business, or other fields of service to the public. Nominees are sought encompassing international, national, provincial or regional contributions. Normally two Honorary Degrees are conferred at each regular Convocation ceremony.

Nominator(s), or selected designates of nominator(s), will serve as Host to the Honorary Degree recipient. Hosts are expected to provide local transportation and coordinate with the Convocation Office on the itinerary. We anticipate recipients may be invited to participate in other events, potentially organized by the nominator, and we encourage those opportunities; however, nominators should not expect additional funding and only if the Convocation Office is given advanced notice.

Honorary degree nominations are accepted year-round. The deadline for nominations for Convocation 2019 was Tuesday, October 9, 2018. The Honorary Degree recipient for 2019 will be recognized at Convocation on Friday, May 31, 2019.
