The American College of Greece on Saturday awarded an honorary degree to UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi.

The institution annually confers degrees among academics, artists, philanthropists and political leaders from Greece and the United States whom the college deems inspirational leaders.

“The American College of Greece offers a world-class education and is helping shape the next generation of leaders in Greece and the world,” Katehi said in a news release. “I consider it one of the great honors of my career to receive this honorary degree.”

Katehi was the first woman from her small community on the Greek island of Salamis to attend college, she has said, and one of two women in her class at National Technical University of Athens, from which she earned her bachelor’s degree in 1977.

She earned master’s and doctoral degrees in electrical engineering from UCLA in 1981 and 1984, respectively.

A longtime member of the faculty at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where her research centered around electronic circuit design, she later served as dean of Purdue University’s College of Engineering and as provost of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. In 2009, she was named UCD’s sixth chancellor.

Founded in 1875, and now located in Athens, the 3,000-student American College of Greece is the oldest and largest U.S.-accredited college in Europe. Previous recipients of honorary degrees from the college include former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell, D-Me., former Harvard University President Derek Bok and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Doris Kearns Goodwin.
