UBC’s Okanagan campus will not only be celebrating its students this week but will also be awarding three honorary degrees to business leader Anthony von Mandl, Splatsin First Nation Elder Rosalind Williams and astrophysicist Victoria Kaspi.

UBC Okanagan honorary degrees are conferred on deserving individuals for their long-standing achievement in an academic field or unparalleled commitment to community service. Recipients will receive their honorary degrees during campus convocation ceremonies on June 7 and 8.

“All three honorary degree recipients this year demonstrate, through their outstanding careers and achievements, the very principles that drive UBC’s Okanagan campus,” says Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Principal Deborah Buszard. “They have each devoted their lives to creating vibrant and healthy communities and to pushing the boundaries of human knowledge. It is our great pleasure to confer on them honorary degrees.”
