The rock star, whose hits include Schools Out, is being awarded an honorary doctorate by a Christian liberal arts university.

The 56-year-old will receive the honour at a Grand Canyon University ceremony on Saturday.

Cooper, whose classic albums include Killer and Welcome to my Nightmare, has financially supported the university, officials said.

He was known for shocking audiences with gruesome concert performances featuring simulated hangings and infant dolls gushing blood.

More recently, he has been known in the Phoenix, Arizona area as a family man who sometimes coaches Little League baseball.

Alice Cooper is a guy who made it big in a very tough business and has made his faith a priority, said Michael Clifford, vice chairman for the university.

He can become a real mentor for our students, sharing his knowledge, valuable contacts and real-life experiences in the performing arts.
