Faculty Life Committee
Honorary Degree Nominations
The Faculty Life Committee invites nominations of candidates for honorary degrees. Submissions should be accompanied by a dossier that includes a letter of nomination, the candidate's vitae, one or more letters of recommendation, and any other relevant supporting materials, such as press clippings, etc. Nomination dossiers must be received by November 3, yearly.
Honorary degrees are awarded to non-alumni of St. Olaf College whose academic, literary, artistic or humanitarian work embodies the mission of St. Olaf College. Awards are based on individual merit and accomplishment of an academic, literary, artistic, or humanitarian nature. Exceptional candidates are those whose contributions have specifically enriched life at St. Olaf.
Nominations and supporting materials should be sent by campus mail to the Chair of the Faculty Life Committee.
