The Montana State University Honorary Degree Committee is soliciting nominations for 2014
The Montana State University Honorary Degree Committee is soliciting nominations for 2014.
Policy: Montana State University may award an honorary degree to individuals who:
· have an association with MSU and/or the State of Montana by virtue of birth, education or direct contribution to the well-being of the state's citizens.
· have distinguished themselves in such a manner and at such a level as to have won recognition in their respective areas of endeavor at the state, regional or national levels.
· will reflect favorably on MSU, the Montana University System, and the State of Montana.
Long tenure in a position, personal durability and above average service, while praiseworthy do not equate with merit as conceived in these criteria. The renown of the candidates should reflect favorably on MSU and Montana. While most honorary degrees are rightfully conferred in acknowledgment of a full and distinguished career, some honorary degrees may also be conferred on distinguished young achievers. Current employees of the Montana University System are not eligible for this honor.
Procedures: Faculty and any other interested persons may nominate qualified individuals for an honorary degree by submitting a letter of nomination to the Honorary Degree Committee. Please submit nominations by November 8, 2013 to:
John Carlsten, Chair
c/o Maggie Hammett
MSU President's Office
211 Montana Hall
In addition to letters of nomination, supporting materials, such as resumes and supportive letters are required.
The complete policy can be found at http://www2.montana.edu/policy/honorary_degree/. For more information, contact Maggie Hammett at 994-2343.
