Class2019CLASS OF 2019 - COMMENCEMENT INFORMATION
At the 90-minute  All Campus Commencement Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla will officially confer degrees by academic division upon graduates of the six undergraduate colleges, Graduate Division and professional schools.

Keynote Speaker: Madeleine K. Albright
When Madeleine K. Albright was named the sixty-fourth secretary of state in 1997, she became, at that time, the highest-ranking woman in the history of the US government. Appointed by former president Bill Clinton and serving until 2001, she reinforced America's alliances, advocated for democracy and human rights, and promoted American trade, business, labor, and environmental standards abroad.  From 1993 to 1997, Albright served as the US permanent representative to the United Nations and was a member of the president's cabinet. She is a professor in the practice of diplomacy at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service. Albright is chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategy firm, and chair of Albright Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets. She also chairs the National Democratic Institute, serves as the president of the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation and is a member of the US Department of Defense's Defense Policy Board.  In 2012, she was chosen by former president Barack Obama to receive the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, in recognition of her contributions to international peace and democracy. Albright immigrated to the United States from Czechoslovakia at age eleven, and is the granddaughter of Holocaust victims.
