The Board of Governors may grant honorary degrees to recognize
individuals for outstanding achievement in a field and demonstrated commitment
to Truman State University’s mission and values. Any member of the

degree. To receive full consideration for the upcoming academic year, all
nominations must be made formally through the President’s Office by March 1.
A nomination form should be submitted for each honorary degree nominee along
with his or her resume or curriculum vitae (a detailed biographical sketch is
acceptable if neither a resume nor a curriculum vitae is available). See
