Disney’s Eisner Receives Honorary Doctorate From California State University
California State University, Northridge (CSUN) on Friday conferred an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree upon Walt Disney CEO Michael Eisner. Eisner received his degree during commencement ceremonies for the university’s College of Education, which is named in his honor.
In 2003, CSUN dedicated the Michael D. Eisner College of Education, the first time in its history that the university named a college after an individual. The Eisner Foundation awarded CSUN a $7 million grant to establish the college of education’s new Center for Teaching and Learning.
Eisner received his B.A. in English literature and theater from Denison University. Friday’s award is Eisner’s first honorary degree.
