Honorary degree nominations sought

Who do you think deserves an honorary degree from Brock University? The Governance Committee of Senate is seeking nominations for potential honorary degree recipients.

Nominations can be submitted throughout the year, however, if you want to see your ideal recipient considered as a nominee for convocation in June 2017, your nomination needs to be submitted by Jan. 20.

Who can submit a nomination? Any member of the Brock community or public can submit nominations.

How do you submit a nomination? Nomination forms and guidelines are available online or by contacting the Office of the University Secretariat at x3334.

How does the nomination process work? The Senate Governance Committee reviews, in confidence, all nominations received and will forward its recommendations to Senate for consideration. Senate does not report on its deliberations because of confidentiality, but those approved at Senate are added to the University’s List of Proposed Honorary Degree Recipients for all convocations at which an honorary degree is to be awarded, and the President will select recipients from the list.
