Gerald Vandezande awarded the honorary Doctor of Letters

At a special convocation on October 20, 2006, the Institute for Christian Studies (ICS) honoured Mr. Gerald Vandezande by awarding him the honorary degree of Doctor of Letters.

This is the first honorary degree ever offered by ICS under its Province of Ontario degree-granting legislation. It was appropriate that Gerald should be the first recipient as he has long supported the mission of the Institute for Christian Studies ( to offer programs leading to Master and PhD degrees from a Christian perspective. He played a key role in helping ICS obtain the right to offer provincially accredited graduate degrees.

Congratulations, Gerald Vandezande, C.M., D.Litt!
