The University is introducing a new model for Commencement this spring, with each school and college, as well as the three divisions of Harpur College of Arts and Sciences, holding its own ceremony. Honorary doctorates and doctoral degrees will be awarded during the first-ever Doctoral Hooding Ceremony, at 3 p.m. Friday, May 17, in the Events Center.

Honorary doctorates will be awarded to pioneering pilot, educator and philanthropist Marilyn C. Link; scientist and inventor Voya Markovich; preeminent social worker and champion of the homeless Nancy Wackstein; and scientist and scholar George Whitesides.

Congrats to all of the BU graduates and to the folks receiving honorary degrees!
