Members of the university community are invited to nominate individuals for honorary degrees, which will be awarded during spring commencement.
Honorary degrees from Case Western Reserve University recognize individuals who exemplify the highest ideals and standards of excellence in their work and in other endeavors, such as scholarship, public service or the performing arts.
A committee, chaired by Provost W. A. “Bud” Baeslack and including representation from each of the university’s schools and college, meets annually during the fall
semester to review nominations.
The deadline for nominations to be considered for this year is Friday, Sept. 27.
Members of the university community may submit nominations—preferably by e-mail—to Lois Langell at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of the Provost.
Nominees should not be informed of the nomination. Current members of the faculty, staff or the Board of Trustees are not eligible for an honorary degree.
