The Degrees of DArts, DCL, DD, DLitt, DMus, DSc, DUniv and LLD
Award of Honorary Degrees in 2020 and onwards
The next meeting of the University’s Honorary Degrees Committee will take place in autumn 2020 and I am writing to invite you to submit suggestions for the award of honorary degrees for the consideration of the Committee. Suggestions should be returned by the end of September 2020 by email to J.L.Pearsall@kent.ac.uk.
To ensure the award of honorary degrees across a broad range of academic disciplines and subject areas it would be helpful to receive at least one or two suggestions from each School.
The attached Paper gives details of the honorary degrees currently available and of the criteria to be used by the Committee in determining recommendations for Senate and Council to approve. There are also Guidance Notes and the nomination form, which can be found here. (Word document and pdf)
For background information, lists of recent honorary graduates with biographies can be found here.
I would be very grateful if all suggestions could be made using the nomination form as this will ensure that we receive all the information necessary for suggestions to be properly considered at the forthcoming meeting of the Honorary Degrees Committee.
