About Committee

The President's Ad Hoc Advisory Committee on Honorary Degrees reviews and evaluates nominations received by the campus community for honorary degrees according to criteria set out in the "Revised Guidelines for the Awarding of Honorary Degrees - The California State University," approved July 10-11, 1990 by the CSU Board of Trustees.

The committee shall review nominations made by the campus community; assist in the development and compilation of materials in support of such nominations; and forward those nominations selected by the committee as meeting the criteria set out in trustee policy to the President.

The committee will develop local campus procedures for the timely dissemination of information relating to availability, criteria, eligibility, and the process by which nominations for honorary degrees might be made.
