Apply for Consideration as the 2018 Stuart Commencement Student Speaker

Each year, one undergraduate and one graduate student are selected to represent the graduating class by giving a speech at the Stuart Commencement Ceremony. All graduates who have a GPA of 3.5 or above and who are in good academic, financial, and disciplinary standing are invited to apply by submitting a written draft of your proposed speech via email to by Friday, March 23. 

Speeches should be approximately 5 minutes in length and should capture the essence of your experience at Stuart. A committee of Stuart staff and faculty will review your submission, and the top submissions will be invited to present their speech to the committee for final consideration.
