He has an honorary doctorate from Haverford College, Georgetown, and State University of New York College at Cortland. All three are due to his humanitarian work in Africa. Humanitarian work has been a major part of Mutombo's life during and after his basketball career. He has recieved awards (including one from President George W. Bush) for his efforts in reducing polio worldwide as well as his resolution to assist the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Now he's helping out visually impaired kids in D.C. He's on the Board of Trustees of the National Constituion Center along with Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and retired Supreme Court (and first female) Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Most importantly, he stars in one of those insufferable GEICO ads that everyone else besides me must like because they keep making them.
