Your "Cause to be Honored"
An honorary doctorate is entirely legitimate and the title conferred
may be used like any other. The degree is awarded to those who
have demonstrated an Honoris Causa, or cause to be honored.
For a small "support honorarium" (donation) you may
participate in our Honorary Doctorate Program. This program is
offered only to a select group of highly accomplished individuals
such as yourself. As a professional, a degree -- or additional
degree -- will allow you to make a greater impact. The expedient
way of showing the world your knowledge, abilities, experience
and talents is with your degree and use of your titles.

Mayor Rudolph Giuliani)
Right Human Relations, Goodwill and Services
The development of the capacity to exhibit Right Human Relations
and act with goodwill is a quality possessed only by those more
enlightened individuals who, like yourself, are sensitive to the
needs of themselves and the needs of others. More of this caring,
loving attitude is required in order to help improve world conditions
for all people.
Many of us as intelligent, responsible, conscientious concerned
human beings can best be of service by acting as a light or beacon
whereby the rest of Humanity can see. The quality to learn, grow
and above all share amongst one another for the ultimate benefit
of all on the planet, is one of the most altruistic goals.
The University of Berkley, You and World Service

help the individual take the initial steps towards betterment
of self and society. The University of Berkley is one such institution…
predicated upon the principles of goodwill and service. An essential
way in which we serve is literally to recognize the accomplishments
of those deserving individuals in order that they may go on in
their own ways to make a contribution to their communities and

Educational and professional advancement

outreach/social work and alternative educational programs.
