Re: 2016 Call for Nominations for Honorary Degrees

This is a reminder that the deadline for nominations for honorary degrees is Friday, September 18, 2015.

By awarding honorary degrees, the University of Toronto seeks to recognize extraordinary achievement, in Canada or abroad, in community, national, or international involvement, and to honour those individuals whose accomplishments are of such excellence that they provide, through example, inspiration and leadership to the graduates of the University. The Committee for Honorary Degrees would like to encourage interest and participation in this important process, and urge you and your colleagues to submit nominations for exceptional individuals.

Please see the Committee for Honorary Degrees web page for nomination instructions, nomination forms, and additional information about the process. A list of honorary degree recipients from 1850 – 2015 can be found here.

Please contact Ms. Sheree Drummond, Secretary to the Committee for Honorary Degrees (sheree.drummond@utoronto.ca, 416-978-8425) if you have any questions.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important process.
