Ithaca College embraces the privilege and opportunity to recognize outstanding leadership, scholarship, and/or personal achievement through the granting of honorary degrees. To safeguard the high character of such a degree and the name of Ithaca College, the candidates should be so distinguished in their own fields that the College, by honoring them, brings credit to itself.
Honorary Degree Advisory Committee
The Honorary Degrees Advisory Committee is a body with a representative from each of the five schools (Business, Communications, Health Sciences, and Human Performance, Humanities and Sciences, and Music). Each representative shall be selected by their unit. Terms are for three years, originally staggered by lot.
