Steiner, president of Steiner Equities Group, who received a Doctor of Humane Letters, and Alexander (Sandy) Howe, a senior designer at the Boston architectural firm of Shepley, Bulfinch, Richardson and Abbott, who was presented with a Doctor of Art degree.

College President Christoph M. Kimmich hailed the triumvirate for its “significant impact on our local and global communities.”
