College Seeks Alumni Input

Oswego is seeking nominations from alumni for campus visitors and honorees.

Ban An KhawThroughout any given academic year, SUNY Oswego features speakers, visiting scholars, Alumni-In-Residence, guest presenters, Commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients.

These individuals offer the college community their expertise, talent and skills and often provide important and inspiring messages of achievement, success and the human condition. The profile of the institution and the value of SUNY Oswego degrees are enhanced with the rising caliber of these special individuals.

The college has the opportunity each year to bestow the honorary doctoral degree as the highest form of recognition offered by the State University of New York to persons of exceptional distinction.

The awarding of honorary degrees has a designated process established by SUNY to recognize excellence in the fields of the degrees authorized at State University campuses as well as business, philanthropy, public affairs, and public service (the science, humanities, and the arts, scholarship and education, business and philanthropy, and social services) which exemplify the mission and purposes of SUNY. In addition, we often feature Commencement speakers to offer words of wisdom to our graduates.

We welcome the input of our vibrant alumni community — 75,000 strong spread throughout the country and the world — to identify those individuals whom should receive an honorary degree, be a Commencement speaker and/or come to SUNY Oswego to provide a benefit to our students.

Please use this form to submit your nomination.

Heart science pioneer Dr. Ban An Khaw '69 received an honorary doctorate of science from the State University of New York at Commencement May 16, 2009.
