UJ Alumni Impumelelo Magazine Edition 8

University of Johannesburg honorary doctoral degrees Honorary doctoral degrees are conferred on candidates with outstanding intellectual contributions of high academic distinction; and/or relevant meritorious or outstanding contributions to public life or significant benefit to society at large with evidence of a contribution that is innovative, beyond the norm and characteristic of a leader in the field, self-initiated and self-directed; related to the University’s vision, mission, values and strategic goals and objectives. UJ strives for a robust pool of honorary doctoral degree recipients enriched by individuals from all backgrounds, and therefore encourages nominations of distinguished individuals with a connection to the University or its precursor institutions, the City of Johannesburg or the Gauteng region, whose accomplishments are worthy of academic celebration.
