What:      Former president of the Republic of Ireland Mary McAleese will receive an honorary doctorate of humane letters from UMass Lowell. McAleese was the first person born in Northern Ireland to hold the office. The distinction contributed to her focus on the peace process and reconciliation during her two terms in office from 1997 to 2011. The ceremony will include a procession of UMass Lowell faculty members and, along with McAleese, speakers including UMass Lowell Chancellor Marty Meehan and Executive Vice Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney. The ceremony will be held during a reception in McAleese’s honor presented by UMass Lowell’s Center for Irish Partnerships and the Lowell Irish Cultural Committee.
