Both an undergraduate and graduate/professional student speaker will be selected to address the graduating class at commencement. The speakers, who are selected through an applicant review process, must be members of the graduating class they plan to address. The final selection of the speakers will be made by the President’s Cabinet. Selection will be based on civic engagement, scholarly achievements and awards.
Students may self-nominate or be nominated by their College Dean or faculty member.
