Monday, May 21, 2018

 

Clark Commencement

Clark University awarded degrees to 1,052 graduates during its 114th Commencement ceremonies held on Sunday, May 20 on the Jefferson Academic Green.

The breakdown of degrees included 451 bachelors, 577 master’s, and 24 doctorates.

“I share this history today, at your Commencement, to acknowledge the community of faculty and graduates of which you are now a part. It’s a community of courageous thinkers and resilient doers who no matter their year of graduation—1905, 1946, or 2018—all of these graduates would recognize today’s motto: Challenge Convention and Change our World. Clark graduates throughout the decades have made a difference, and we are proud and excited to welcome you to this distinguished alumni community,” said President David Angel.

Keynote Address

The keynote address was given by Hauwa Ibrahim, an international human rights, and Shariah law attorney.

“I learned in each given situation—as a lawyer, as a teacher, as a mother—to understand the dynamic of what I’m doing and I chose to work within the dynamic,” said Ibrahim.

She added, “You will be tested — and when you are tested what should you do? We are going into a new world order that you will be defining, or redefining. Faith, resilience, and humility will not hurt.  When tested, understand your situation and work within.”

She received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree.
