NMSU: College of Business Honorary Degrees. Selection of honorary doctoral degree recipients rests with the Board of Regents of New Mexico State University. Responsibility for seeking qualified candidates rests with University Advancement. Nominations are usually sought from the campus community, alumni and volunteers associated with the university. No current faculty member, administrator of the university, or any currently serving elected official should receive an honorary degree. However, with a majority vote of the Board of Regents, these prohibitions can be overruled.
