Honorary Degree Nominations for 2020

Each May at Commencement, we bestow honorary degrees on 4-6 individuals who exemplify the Simmons mission — one of the honorary degree recipients traditionally gives a graduation address, as well.

Any member of our community (admin, staff, students, faculty, alums) is welcome to submit a 2020 nomination. Nominees should be generally outstanding in their fields and have a substantial body of work over years of activity to recommend the honor. They may be from the US or another country. They may be in any professional field. Their work should be aligned with and exemplify the beliefs and values of the University.
