Emmy Award-winning fashion celebrity Carson Kressley will earn the title of "Dr. Kressley" when he receives the honorary degree Doctor of Humane Letters and addresses undergraduate students at Philadelphia University's 129th Commencement on Saturday, May 11.

"What an honor it is to receive this degree from Philadelphia University.  I'm a big fan of their solid educational programs and entrepreneurial spirit," Kressley said.  "Although I'm not an academic I certainly know my way around the fashion world and hope to inspire the graduating class by sharing my 'anything is possible' story."

Throughout his career as a television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer, Kressley has won fans for his roles in "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" as well as Lifetime's critically acclaimed show, "How to Look Good Naked," ABC's "True Beauty" from executive producers Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher , Oprah Winfrey 's "Your Own Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star," and his current show on the Oprah Winfrey Network " Carson Nation ," in which Kressley travels to small towns across the U.S., transforming lives one person at a time with humor and style.

Kressley also heated up the dance floor as a contestant on the 13th season of ABC's mega-hit "Dancing with the Stars" and is a New York Times best-selling author with three books to his credit, including "You're Different and That's Super," a children's book promoting diversity and tolerance.

“Carson Kressley is a tremendous friend to Philadelphia University," said Philadelphia University President Stephen Spinelli Jr.  "His energy and enthusiasm are contagious, and he has a real heart for encouraging students and young professionals to pursue their goals.  He has been successful on many levels and serves as a role model for our students, who are taught to think and work across disciplines.  We couldn't be more proud to have Carson as our Commencement speaker."

Kressley has a history of supporting PhilaU, visiting campus in March 2012 to encourage students in the fashion programs and participate in a student-led interview on his experiences in the industry.  Kressley also introduced Spirit of Design Award recipient Tommy Hilfiger at the 2011 Philadelphia University Fashion Show and, in 2006, a PhilaU fashion design student was presented with the Carson Kressley Scholarship for outstanding design work.

More than 800 undergraduate and graduate students will receive diplomas at the 2013 Commencement ceremonies on May 11.

Philadelphia University, founded in 1884, is a private university with 3,600 students enrolled in more than 60 undergraduate and graduate programs. As a model for professional university education, the University prepares students to be leaders in their professions in an active, collaborative and real-world learning environment infused with the liberal arts.  Philadelphia University includes the innovative Kanbar College of Design, Engineering and Commerce; the College of Architecture and the Built Environment; and the College of Science, Health and the Liberal Arts.
