THE HONORARY DEGREE
An honorary doctoral degree is often awarded in recognition of one’s life experiences. It is denoted by the letters ‘H.C.’ which is an abbreviation for ‘Honoris Causa’ (Latin for ‘for the sake of honor’).
An Honorary Degree may be awarded to an individual who has achieved acknowledged eminence in cultural affairs, in public service, or in a field of knowledge and scholarship. In all cases, reasonable endowments are expected from prospective honorees.
Honorary Doctorate Degrees are awarded by Rai University to leaders of national and international eminence in their areas of endeavour, recognizing their substantial achievement and contributions in the arts, Management, Science and Technology, Education, Public Service, Humanitarian Pursuits, Leadership, and Civil rights.
The Honorary degree is the highest award conferred by the Rai University. Throughout its rich history, Rai University has awarded many renowned personalities who have served to nation and society at large. We celebrate and salute all the Honourees.
