Eighteen years ago, His Highness the Aga Khan delivered Brown University’s (Providence, USA) 1996 Commencement Ceremony, becoming the first Muslim to deliver the address in the university’s then 232 year history. Next week, on 10 March 2014, as part of Brown’s 250th anniversary celebrations, the Aga Khan will return to Brown to deliver the 88th Stephen A. Ogden, Jr. ’60 Memorial Lecture.
To commemorate the event, the NanoWisdoms Archive is pleased to present 54 years of recognition of the Aga Khan by Western educational institutions. Of the 47 honorary doctorates awarded to him and speeches he has been invited to deliver at educational institutions, 30 were at Western institutions.
