On behalf of our Nominations and Governance Committee, I am writing to invite you to submit nominations for people you think may qualify to be awarded our Doctor of Divinity Degree at the 2013 Convocation on May 6, 2013 at Kerrisdale Presbyterian Church.
Please submit your nominations to us by February 20, 2013.
Along with your nomination, please provide us with some supporting documentations (letter of nomination and a resume) that will help us to interpret the reasons for your recommendation. The criteria that are applied in the selection of candidates for this degree are as follows:
“The degree is open to persons who clearly exemplify the values of the School. Such persons should also have made a significant contribution, though the integration of theology and practice of ministry in one or more of:
• Theological scholarship
• Ecumenical dialogue either within the Christian community or with other faiths/traditions
• The life and ministry of the Christian community in Canada and/or in the world
• Interdisciplinary scholarship involving theology and other fields.
Current faculty members would not normally be eligible for nomination.” To assist you with reflection on this request we are attaching a list of former recipients. We would like to stress that selection of recipients is a confidential process, so that you should not reveal to a nominee that s/he is being nominated.
Nominations may be sent to the attention of Mavis Ho at: firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of John McLaren
for the Nominations and Governance Committee of the Board.
