Omega Global University Honorary Degrees Charter

PREMISE

(a) The Omega Global University Constitution, makes provision for the conferment of advanced degrees, including an honorary doctoral degree (honoris causa) for the sake of honour, as an academic award in all the faculties of the institution, provided that the recipient of such a degree is not entitled, on the basis of such a degree, to fulfil any function, carry out any activities or practise a profession. Although this Act also provides for the conferment of an honorary master’s degree, it is uncommon to such an extent that it is not conferred by the Omega Global University.

(b) An honorary doctoral degree is an academic award that entitles the honoured person to bear the doctoral title honoris causa in recognition of his/her outstanding academic contributions that do not however meet the requirements set in the University Rules or the Act for the conferment of a doctoral degree as a result of the successful completion of a recognized programme of study of the Omega Global University.

(c) A submission for an honorary doctoral degree is considered by the relevant committee constituted in terms of this charter.

(d) A conservative award policy is followed, in order to emphasize the extraordinary and inherent value of the awards.

(e) Since the award is an OGUHDEC award, it is considered only by the Board of Regents of Omega Global University on the recommendation of a combined Committee constituted in terms of this Charter.

(f) No award is made unless the OGUHDEC unanimously recommends it to the Board of Regents, subject to the provision contained in section 4 to 2 of this Charter.

  1. COMPOSITION OF THE OGU HONORARY DEGREES EVALUATION COMMITTEE

     The committee for the consideration of honorary doctoral degrees, the OGU Honorary Degrees Evaluation Committee (OGUHDEC) comprises the following five members:
(a) The Chairman of the OGUHDEC.
(b) The Vice Chairman of the OGUHDEC
(c) Executive of Academic Part
(d) Researcher for Innovation and Advancement.
(e) The Registrar, who also serves as the Secretary of the OGUHDEC.

  1. FUNCTIONS OF THE OGUHDEC
    The function of this OGUHDEC is to recommend to the Board of Regents one or more persons for the award of an honorary doctoral degree of the Omega Global University in terms of the policy and criteria detailed below.
  2. PROCEDURE FOLLOWED BY THE OGUHDEC

(a) The Registrar addresses a written invitation to all OGUHDEC members to submit fully motivated proposals, signed by the primary proposer and at least two other persons who are all members of the OGUHDEC members, for the conferment of an honorary doctoral degree in the future before a deadline provided by him.

(b) The proposals are subsequently considered respectively by the OGU Honorary Degrees Evaluation Committee, which then submits a report and recommendations to the OGUHDEC for consideration with regard to the candidates recommended by the OGUHDEC. The OGUHDEC makes recommendations to the Board of Regents only if it reaches a unanimous decision. In exceptional circumstances, however, where unanimity does not exist amongst members of the OGUHDEC in respect of a particular candidate, the Chairman may nevertheless recommend a candidate to the Board of Regents for a decision.

(c) The OGUHDEC decides on the conferment of an honorary doctoral degree by means of consensus or, if consensus cannot be reached, by means of a secret ballot of the Board of Regents present on the recommendations submitted. An honorary degree will only be conferred on a candidate if at least 85% of the Board of Regents present vote in favour of the conferment of an honorary degree on a person recommended by the OGUHDEC.

(d) The OGUHDEC may decide to confer an honorary doctoral degree on a candidate at any graduation ceremony within the subsequent period, taking into account the awards made to other suitable candidates in terms of this charter and other relevant organisational aspects.

  1. POLICY ON AWARDING AN HONORARY DOCTORAL DEGREE

(a) With regard to all aspects relevant to the consideration of a candidate for an honorary doctoral degree, confidentiality is extremely important in order to avoid embarrassment to Omega Global University or any individuals concerned, for whatever reason, submissions are unsuccessful. For this reason, no aspect of the process serves before the Board of Regents.

(b) At the relevant graduation ceremony of advanced degrees of the home faculty within which an honorary doctoral degree falls, an honorary doctoral degree is awarded to someone who has rendered an outstanding service that promotes the field described in the Faculty of Ministry, Missions and Theology, Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Education, or any other branch of education in which the study could be undertaken in a recognised faculty of Omega Global University.

(c) The policy of the OGUHDEC is that an honorary doctoral degree is an academic award and that the award is based on relevant outstanding intellectual contributions and/or relevant outstanding contributions to public life in all spheres.

(d) The conferment of an honorary doctoral degree is considered only after the OGUHDEC has sought the advice of the dean’s committee of the faculty in which the honorary degree would fall or, if the honorary degree is not clearly faculty-specific, the OGUHDEC seeks the advice of the dean of the faculty in which the discipline of the nominee’s contribution falls on the basis of which the submission for the honorary doctoral degree was made.

(e) Former academics of the University who meet all the criteria may be considered for the conferment of an honorary doctoral degree, but no serving Council member or current staff member of the University may be considered.

(f) An honorary doctoral degree can be awarded posthumously only if the process for considering the candidate’s suitability was initiated before his death.

(g) Relevant criteria:

  1. A)As a high academic distinction, the conferment of an honorary doctoral degree is based on relevant outstanding intellectual contributions and/or relevant outstanding contributions to public life in all spheres, and the extent to which the candidate meets such criteria must be highlighted in the submission. The University’s strategic goals should be taken into consideration when the candidate’s contribution is assessed.
  2. B)An outstanding contribution is usually an input and/or product in a national and/or international context that attests to a creative spirit and intellect.
  3. C) Since an honorary doctoral degree is exceptional, a conservative policy is followed
