On May 14, the College will award an honorary degree to the civil rights advocate at the ceremony celebrating the Class of 2022.
Each year Haverford College awards honorary degrees to individuals who have distinguished themselves in letters, the sciences, or the arts. Recipients are customarily announced in the spring months preceding Commencement. Many honorees are noted for their contributions to the overall betterment of humankind and/or Haverford College.
Note: Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College did not award Honorary Degrees in 2020 or 2021.
