President's Message

Graduates, it is a true pleasure and honor to finally be celebrating your in-person commencement.

As the first class to persevere through and graduate into the pandemic year, you set the precedent for how we could succeed through such a challenging period: with grit, accountability, positivity, and an open mind.

Although I wasn’t President at the time of your virtual commencement in spring of 2020, I have been inspired by your tenacity throughout this past year and have so looked forward to welcoming you back to campus to celebrate your accomplishments in person. I am proud to be your President, and have no doubt that this incredibly unique group will go on to achieve great things with the knowledge, wisdom, and motivation that has been ascribed specifically to the Class of 2020.

There are so many opportunities for you to be inspired, stay connected and become more involved with the University. Whether by attending an alumni reunion, mentoring a current student, networking with fellow alums or re-connecting with professors, our goal is to help you stay engaged with your alma mater.
