University of Kansas Honorary Degree Nomination Form
As you consider nominations, please bear in mind the following:
Honorary degrees are for true distinction in scholarship, humanitarian work, and other areas of endeavor, and are not primarily intended for our own alumni. An award recipient must not be chosen solely because of his/her ties to the University, although it is possible the he/she might often have direct ties to the University. Through the nomination process, it may be that most nominees would have KU ties or state of Kansas ties.
Per the Kansas Board of Regents policy; No recipient can be chosen based upon their philanthropic contributions to the University. In addition, a politician nominated should not have been in office for at least five (5) years.
Please include as much information as you are able. This allows the committee to make a more informed and complete decision on appropriate candidates. You may be contacted to provide additional information.
