Graduation

What do we do?

The purpose of the Class of 2022’s Graduation Committee is to plan and coordinate the activities of Valedictory exercises and celebrate those individuals who graduate at any point during their fourth year. The Trustee’s Graduation Committee selects the keynote speaker for valediction, makes recommendations regarding the ceremony, creates events for graduates, and fosters a positive celebratory atmosphere surrounding the events of Commencement.
