Should state universities be allowed to award honorary degrees?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on May 25, 2010
“Yes, if the other states are allowing it then there’s no reason that Kansas shouldn’t.”
“Yes, they should because some people are worthy of being honored, even though they may not have done all the necessary course work, but their life’s achievements may have qualified them.”
“Yes, if they feel like they deserve it enough and don’t overdo it handing out the awards.”
“If it is an honorary degree in something that the university is well-known for or excels in, then I don’t have a problem with it.”
