Honorary Degree Nomination

All material is submitted in confidence. Please do not discuss your nomination with the nominee. Please be aware that neither your name nor any personal information about you, as nominator, may appear in your nomination letter. Your personal information is not given to the Senate Committee on University Honours with the nomination materials. The Registrar may contact the nominator should further information be required.

The Senate Committee on University Honours will make recommendations to Senate regarding both the names of individuals to be honoured and the degree to be awarded in each instance. Unfortunately, not all nominations are successful in any given year. The Committee keeps nominations active for a period of three years and additional material may be added to the nomination. If you are submitting more than one nomination, please prioritize your nominations (and submit only those that you believe meet the highest standards). If you require further information, please contact the Registrar as indicated below, or refer to the SCUH website.
