Tracee Ellis Ross Receives Honorary Doctorate From Brown University

By Posted on 26 1 m read

Congratulations are in order as Tracee Ellis Ross, the hilarious actress from ABC’s Blackish, has just received an honorary Doctorate in Fine Arts from her alma mater Brown University!

Ross graduated from the Ivy League school in 1994 and was granted this special honor over Memorial Day Weekend. While it’s only an honorary doctorate, Tracee has a lot to be proud for and she took to Instagram a couple days ago to share the good news: “Well, I’m officially Dr. Ross. This was HUGE to be honored this way by my Alma Mater @BrownU I know this is not a real doctorate but i am humbled by this moment! #BrownUniversity #HonoraryDegree #excited #humbled #moved.”

Congrats Tracee! Well-deserved.
