MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday received an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree from a university in her home province.


Robredo accepted the honoris causa awarded to by the University of Saint Anthony in Iriga City, Camarines Sur, during the university’s 70th Commencement Exercise.


In her speech, Robredo said she is thankful and humbled to accept the honorary degree of Doctor of Humanities.


“My prayer is to be worthy of the honor in all that I do and in all that I am," Robredo said in her speech.

Based on her Facebook account, Robredo’s honoris cause is “in recognition of her exemplary achievements as a leader, a champion of human rights, a public servant and a Bicolana by blood and heart.”  


Robredo previously served her home province as a congresswoman. She also served as public attorney and was a member of alternative lawyers group SALIGAN where she helps farmers, fisherfolk and women, particularly in oppressive circumstances, including indigenous people.


This is the second time the vice president received an honorary degree. In 2015, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines conferred Doctor of Public Administration on her.


Robredo’s acceptance of honoris causa came amid the contested plan of the University of the Philippines to grant  President Rodrigo Duterte an honorary Doctor of Laws degree. It is traditionally offered to the head of the state but not all presidents have accepted it.


Duterte on Wednesday said he is declining the state university’s offer, saying he does not accept awards “as a matter of personal and official policy.”
