"This historic gift to the USC School of Religion highlights the department's commitment to study the enduring questions of human life and values from a global perspective," said Duncan Williams, chair of the School of Religion. "There is a profound wisdom tradition embedded in Hinduism, and we humbly believe Hinduism can make a valuable contribution to global problems and challenges," the Dharma Civilization Foundation stated.

The foundation said USC was selected for this historic gift because of its tradition of reflecting the values of Indian community both locally and globally.

"The USC School of Religion is creating a distinctive program embodying a new Asia Pacific/West Coast style of religious studies," Williams said. "We aim for a multi-faith and global religious studies program that takes advantage of our place and moment as we position ourselves to be the intellectual hub for the Asia Pacific century."
"This gift will help distinguish the USC School of Religion by emphasizing strengths in areas that don't have a history in divinity schools," Williams said.

Duncan Williams, who serves as associate professor of Japanese Buddhism and chair of the Center for Japanese Studies at UC-Berkeley, believes the legislation is long overdue. "Of course I think it [AB 37] should've come a long time ago," Williams said. "In my opinion, I would have hoped and thought that the UC system... would be a leader, but it seems like we're at the tail-end." However, Williams points out that the UC system has a history of abstaining from issuing honorary degrees of any kind. In order to issue said degrees, the UC regions had to additionally vote to suspend the regulations. With the degrees approved, approximately 400 former students or families of students-UC-Berkeley had the largest population of Japanese students pre-WWII-will be among the first people in decades to be issued honorary UC degrees. The ceremony will run jointly with the regular undergraduate graduation; Williams, who serves on the ceremony's campus planning committee and who will be reading the names of the Japanese graduates, hopes the university's undergraduates will be able to learn something from the Nisei. According to Williams, a number of private schools on the West Coast have already issued similar degrees.
