U-Mass Amherst Does Not Support an Honorary Degree for Andrew Card sign now

Petition to Revoke Offer of Honorary Degree
to Andrew H. Card, Jr.


We, the undersigned students, faculty, and staff of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, support graduate students in respectfully requesting that all relevant University administrators and administrative bodies, including but not limited to University President, the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, and the Dean of the Graduate School, immediately revoke the offer of an honorary degree to Andrew H. Card, Jr., former White House Chief of Staff from 2000 to 2006 and head of the White House Iraq Group, as Card is not eligible for a degree according to University of Massachusetts Policy Doc. T93-060, "Policy on Awarding Honorary Degrees," which makes only persons of great accomplishment and high ethical standards who exemplify the ideals of the University of Massachusetts eligible for such an honorary degree.
