The citation read as follows:

Bishop Borys Gudziak
Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa

Bishop Borys Gudziak, higher education leader, teacher-scholar, social visionary. Your vision of freedom and love for humanity has helped uplift a university, a church, a country, and its people—and set an inspiring example for the world.

You have worked tirelessly to revive a suppressed university in Ukraine after the fall of the Soviet Union. As president of the Ukrainian Catholic University, you have helped create a contemporary, innovative institution known for its international reach and social responsibility, and centered its identity on those marginalized by society and the martyrs who suffered under tyranny.

In support of human dignity and freedom, you have championed and stood with your students and with all Ukrainians in the revolution to overthrow the country’s corrupt leadership in 2014—and continue to stand with them in the ongoing turmoil.

We are pleased to honor you for your tremendous courage and leadership, helping to reinvigorate a university and faith community and providing a moral center for a country as you work for peace, reconciliation, and healing.
