The University Commencement Committee

The University Commencement Committee solicits and screens nominees for honorary degrees to be conferred by Fordham University at the University Commencement. Recommendations from the University Commencement Committee are then made to the Fordham University Board of Trustees, which must approve the awarding of all honorary degrees from the University.

The membership of the University Commencement Committee includes members of the Board of Trustees, alumni, faculty, administrators, and students. The Committee is chaired by the University Secretary whose office provides staff support for the committee.

The University Commencement Committee may be contacted through the Office of the University Secretary at commencement@fordham.edu or at 718-817-3010.
