John Waterbury's Acceptance Speech

​​June 28, 2008

I have been working with Tom Morris for 10 years and he still surprises me. I am so grateful, beyond words. There is no institution in the world from which I would like to receive an honorary degree, as I would from AUB, because I know this institution well. And because during my term, here, whenever I would attend an official function, I would always be surrounded by people who either had graduated from the University or had cousins who had. Now I can say that I am a graduate of this University too.
