Institutions Not Awarding Honorary Degrees

Some universities, like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Vanderbilt University, Stanford University, the California Institute of Technology, Rice University and the University of Virginia, do not award honorary degrees. MIT does, however, on rare occasions award honorary professorships; Winston Churchill was so honored in 1949 and Salman Rushdie in 1993. Similarly, the Stanford Alumni Association occasionally awards the Degree of Uncommon Man/Woman to individuals who have given "rare and exceptional service" to the university. Though UCLA has imposed a moratorium on awarding honorary degrees, it honors notable people with the UCLA Medal instead.

Famous quotes containing the words degrees and/or institutions:

    Complete courage and absolute cowardice are extremes that very few men fall into. The vast middle space contains all the intermediate kinds and degrees of courage; and these differ as much from one another as men’s faces or their humors do.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Men may die, but the fabric of our free institutions remains unshaken.
    Chester A. Arthur (1829–1886)
