Tracee Ellis Ross Gets Honorary Doctorate from Brown University

Black-ish star wears a cap and gown for her alma mater.

Congrats to the graduate! Well, sort of. Tracee Ellis Ross was one of thousands to march in a cap and gown at Brown University today, as a recipient of an honorary doctorate degree from the school. 
"Well, I'm officially Dr. Ross," she shared alongside a series of cute pictures. "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!"

The degree was especially meaningful since Ross did her undergraduate studies at Brown. She graduated from the Ivy League university in 1994 and returned last year for her 20 year class reunion. 

All hail Dr. Ross!
