    I think the situation is mostly a difference between how the two universities view the awarding of honorary degrees.

    This describes ASU's history:

    "...Phoenix's East Valley Tribune notes,


    Arizona State University has handed out honorary doctorate degrees to pioneering scientists and college presidents, titans of oil and computer microchips, newspaper publishers and generous donors, a foreighn communist educator and a successful movie director.

    But no president of the United States has been deemed worthy of ASU's recognition..."

    While this describes Notre Dame's history:

    "...Barack Obama will be the ninth U.S. president to be awarded an honorary degree by the University of Notre Dame and the sixth to be the Commencement speaker...."
