Honorary Degrees and Awards

 

HUMANITARIAN AND PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD
ΗONORARY DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF HUMANE LETTERS

HUMANITARIAN AND PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD

By decision of the Board of Trustees, an award is made annually at the ACT graduation ceremony to an individual who is judged to have made an outstanding contribution to one or more significant areas of public endeavor, such as education, health, the arts, science, international understanding, athletics, etc.  Criteria for selection will emphasize philanthropy, volunteerism and social improvement.  Preference will be for individuals in Northern Greece, although consideration may be given to those from other parts of Greece or from abroad.  A citation will be at Commencement reflecting the individual's accomplishments and an appropriate plaque presented at that time to the person so honored.

This award is created in the belief that such contributions to society are too infrequently recognized; that a non-profit institution such as Anatolia/ACT should support and encourage endeavors of this nature; and that the philosophy and ethical foundations of this institution provide a suitable context for conferring such an award.

This award was first introduced at the 1995 graduation ceremony.
