2022 Honorary Degree Recipients


Commencement Ribbon

CSULB awards a select number of Honorary Degrees infrequently, only when recognizing lifetime achievements and exceptional contributions to The Beach, the honoree’s field, and society at large. This high honor is bestowed on individuals who contribute to the advancement of the university, set an example of high ethical standards, and inspire through their work, service, and philanthropy. Honorary Degrees are approved by the California State University Office of the Chancellor and are conferred at Commencement by the college granting the honor.
