An award-winning actor, an Indigenous leader and an internationally renowned sociolinguist will all receive honorary degrees from the University of B.C. at next month’s fall convocation ceremony.

Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, president of the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs, and actress Kim Cattrall, star of Sex and the City, producer and author, will both receive Doctor of Laws degrees on Nov. 29. Peter Trudgill, a sociolinguist, will receive a Doctor of Letters degree on Nov. 30.

“I’m delighted to welcome Dr. Trudgill, Grand Chief Phillip and Ms. Cattrall to UBC,” president and vice-chancellor Santa Ono said in a press release. “The bestowal of an honorary degree recognizes substantial contributions to society and all our fall recipients have spent their lives making such contributions.”
