Honorary Doctorate is a degree given by a college or university to someone who is not a student but who has done something important.

An honorary degree acknowledges someone who a university committee deems worth honouring, by offering them a special (albeit mostly symbolic) position, in the university community. A degree that is awarded honoris causa (because Latin boosts snootiness) has never conferred the right to use the degree.

An honorary degree may be awarded to an outstanding individual who satisfies one or more of the following criteria: Eminence, in the course of a career, in some field of scholarship, in public service, or in an artistic, literary, governmental, religious, financial, or other endeavours.
