The University of Guelph will present honorary degrees to two Montreal professors during fall convocation ceremonies this Saturday.
McGill University chemistry prof David Harpp, who is known for advancing science through teaching innovations, will receive an honorary doctorate of laws during a 9 a.m. ceremony. It’s for students in the College of Biological Science, the College of Physical and Engineering Science, and the Ontario Agricultural College.
Chandra Madramootoo, dean of the faculty of agricultural and environmental sciences and associate vice-principal at McGill University, will receive an honorary doctorate of science during a 2 p.m. ceremony. This ceremony is for graduate students in the College of Arts and six other colleges, including the Ontario Agricultural College and the Ontario Veterinary College.
