University of Minnesota sets a date to award honorary degree to Prince

"In June 2016, the University of Minnesota Board of Regents

unanimously voted to present Prince with the Degree

“in recognition of his remarkable talent,

enduring influence in music, and his role in shaping the city of Minneapolis,” says the university’s website.

Tyka Nelson, Prince’s sister, will be accepting the degree on his behalf."

I read that he did know about it, agreed to it now (2015-16) where earlier he declined it. Sounds like he was planning. I also read (whether reliable or not, can't say) that he was in talks to teach too. Of course we see now he was always teaching, always coaching.

I'll see if I can find that discussion or story.

Found it. http://prince.org/msg/7/427555

They talk about the long process and how he finally agreed to accept it.
