Call for honorary degree nominations

It’s that time of year again to consider nominations for UFV Honorary Doctorates for 2023.

The honorary doctorate degree is the highest form of recognition offered by UFV. We have a wonderful legacy of distinguished recipients whose achievements we are honoured to profile and celebrate. These awards are an excellent way to bring publicity to your areas and to connect prominent leaders to students in their field.

Please consider submitting a nomination for this honour, and to keep the nomination strictly confidential from the nominee. You may wish to consult with other colleagues as joint submissions are welcomed. Please visit our website to learn more about the honorary doctorate process, read the Honorary Doctorate Degrees policy, and submit your nomination online. Nominations are accepted year-round and brought forth each fall. For consideration for the 2023 convocation, nominations are recommended to be submitted by December 15, 2022. If you have any questions, please reach out to Lisa McMartin at
