Margo Apostolos, the chair of USC’s Honorary Degrees Committee, is calling for names of distinguished individuals to be considered for an honorary degree at future spring commencements.
“The committee seeks nominations from the USC faculty, staff, students and alumni to add to our pool of candidates. We seek diversity of nominees who represent exemplary levels of excellence,” said Apostolos, director of the department of dance in the USC School of Theatre.
This degree honors those who distinguish themselves through extraordinary achievements in scholarship, the professions or other creative activities; salutes alumni and others who have made outstanding contributions to USC or their communities; and recognizes exceptional acts of philanthropy to USC and those who elevate the university in the eyes of the world.
Any USC faculty, staff, student, alumni or trustee may nominate a candidate. Submit nominations to: Chair of the Honorary Degrees Committee, c/o the Office of the Provost, ADM 203, MC 4019.
