Diddy will be returning to his alma mater to deliver the commencement speech at this year’s Howard University graduation ceremony on May 10.
Sean Combs is also among the five that will be receiving their honorary degree. Interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick says:
“In selecting the individuals who will be awarded honorary degrees, Howard University continues the tradition of identifying leaders whose work has clearly contributed to the advancement of their fields and the world. We are honored to have Mr. Combs serve as our speaker. He sat in classrooms where our students sit, walked ‘The Yard,’ and like many students, his entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at Howard. We know he will inspire our class to work hard and to always strive for excellence.”
