Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NSCAD) University honored UT Austin Professor Teresa Hubbard and colleague Alexander Birchler with honorary Doctorates of Fine Arts degrees at its 2017 Graduation Ceremony for their outstanding contribution to art and culture. 

When Hubbard and Birchler completed their MFA degrees at NSCAD in 1992, they were the first artists in North America to have earned MFA degrees based entirely on a collaborative practice and collaborative thesis. They continue to see success with this collaborative model of practice, including a recent invitation to showcase their work at the 57th annual Venice Biennale
