What is an Honorary Doctoral Degree?
An honorary doctoral degree is often awarded in recognition of one's life experiences. It is denoted by the letters "h.c.", which is an abbreviation for "honoris causa" (Latin for "for the sake of honor"). This means that the degree is bestowed as an honor rather than through the completion of certain academic requirements. Those who are honored with this title often do not have any prior connection to the award-giving institution. They are often given to those who have either made contributions to a certain field,
We believe in securing fairness and justice in society, and abolishing intolerance and inequality
We believe in resolving our differences peacefully and achieving mutual understanding for the good of society
We believe in the fostering of moral excellence, and in the virtues of honesty, responsibility, and altruis
We believe in our capability as human beings to exhibit to the fullest extent honorable qualities such as hope, compassion, beauty, truth, and optimism
We believe in the ethical education of our children, in order to help them grow into noble human beings
We believe in the cultivation of the arts and sciences
We believe in helping the disadvantaged to the best of our abilities
Our goal is to award honorary degrees to individuals we can be proud of--individuals who have shown generosity, who have given back to their communities, and who have inspired others through their passion and commitment to their fields of study or work. We believe that education isn't limited to what we learn in the classroom. People learn throughout their lives, at work, at home, in our communities, and around the world. That learning is valuable and is worthy of an honorary credential.
We started as a small community-based organization. As we awarded honorary doctoral degrees to our local members, we noticed the transformation that happened within these people. They received a new energy and motivation that empowered them to continue doing the kind of selfless and charitable work that had earned them honorary recognition. Our goal as an organization is to do this on a global level, because there are amazing people all around the world who continue to dedicate their skills, their valuable time, and their money to help others, often for nothing in return. We want to honor these people. Are you one of them? Do you deserve an honorary doctorate?
