One of the highlights of UNC Charlotte’s Commencement is the recognition of individuals for exceptional and distinctive service to the University or the larger community with an Honorary Degree from UNC Charlotte. The Faculty Honorary Degree Advisory Committee requests assistance in nominating persons for this honor.
By way of background, the following criteria have been established by the Board of Trustees regarding prospective nominees:
A nomination should include the full name of the nominee; a vita, resume, and/or biography; and a statement of the rationale for the nomination. The nomination must also include the name of the nominator in order to be considered by the Committee. Confidentiality is very important. Therefore, the nominee should not know of his or her nomination. In addition, if you have previously nominated an individual and would like to share any additional contributions of that nominee, you are welcome to submit supplementary materials.
The deadline for nominations is October 31, 2016. Nominations should be directed via email to Matthew Wyse, Faculty Governance Assistant, Office of Academic Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information or questions, please contact Murray Webster, Chairperson, Nominations, Honors, and Awards Committee, at 704-687-7806 or email@example.com.
