     IMPORTANT COMMENCEMENT MESSAGE
     As a class, we have been asked to nominate
individuals to receive honorary degrees at our graduation
in May 2008. Please consider this a wonderful opportunity
to contribute to our graduation and shape Notre Dame.
Please reply promptly with responses by Wednesday, May
2, the last class day. Email class08@nd.edu with any
suggestions. These individuals can also be considered as
our commencement speaker as well.

Excerpt from Provost message to the class:

     “As you may know, during each commencement the University confers a
     number of honorary degrees on individuals of high distinction in recognition
     of their considerable contributions in their respective areas of expertise…

     In addition to submitting the list of nominees… Supplementary materials
     such as articles from magazines, newspapers, or Who’s Who are also helpful.
     The final selection of honorary degree recipients and of the commencement
     speaker rests with Father Jenkins, who makes the selection in consultation
     with the Board of Trustees.

     Nominees should be individuals that, in light of their outstanding
     accomplishments, merit receiving a Notre Dame degree. In order to
     assist you with selecting appropriate nominees, enclosed is a list of
     those who have received honorary degrees from Notre Dame in the
     recent past.

     Understandably, persons of the quality Notre Dame seeks are also in demand
     elsewhere. Consequently, we are not always able to secure the presence of
     those we would like to honor even when negotiations with them begin a year
     or more in advance of the commencement date.”
