2019 Honorand Nomination Form

Questions about the honorand nomination process may be sent to Karolina Kwiecinska, special assistant to the president for external affairs, at karolina.kwiecinska@trincoll.edu​ or (860) 297-4203.

Eligibility for Nominations

The president of the college, trustees, faculty members (individually or jointly), and members of the college community may nominate candidates to receive honorary degrees. Honorary degree nominations for sitting faculty, trustees, or staff will not be considered. All nominations will be held in the strictest confidentiality, and a nomination to the committee does not guarantee selection or approval.

Commencement Speakers

We also welcome nominations for commencement speakers. It is college practice that individuals delivering the Commencement address also receive honorary degrees; therefore, nominations for Commencement speakers follow the honorary degree nomination process. On occasion, someone not being conferred an honorary degree may serve as speaker.​

Thank you!
