Franklyn McIntosh and Professor Edgar Julian Duncan will receive their awards at ceremonies which are scheduled to take place from January 11th–16th, 2021, in a mix of blended, virtual formats and which will celebrate a graduating class of approximately 8,500 students across the region.

McIntosh will receive the Doctor of Letters for his work as a Musical Director/Composer, while Duncan will be awarded with a Doctor of Science degree for his contributions to Caribbean Science and Agriculture.

The awards were approved by the University Council, which has sanctioned over 500 honorary degrees since 1965.
