Rihanna To Receive Honorary Degree

Rihanna is set receive an honorary degree from the University of the West Indies. Rihanna will accept her degree “for eminence in the arts,” her second such honor since receiving The Harvard Foundation award for Humanitarian of the Year in 2017.

According to Nation News, Rihanna will receive her diploma alongside Justice Adrian Dudley Saunders, and Professor Ebenezer Oduru Owusu, who will receive Honorary Doctor of Laws and a Honorary Doctor of Science respectively. The awards are given to those who “have made outstanding regional or international contributions.”

The honorary degree will be presented to her at a special ceremony that is scheduled for October 20 at the Cave Hill Campus in Barbados. The 2018 graduation ceremonies will see Chancellor Robert Bermudez presiding over the ceremonies and conferring degrees to the honorary graduates.
